Co-op Employees Help Needy Children

Delaware Electric Cooperative employees have helped to brighten the Christmas season for dozens of children across Delaware. Through the Children’s Choice program, Co-op employees bought presents for 36 needy children. The Children’s Choice program helps provide presents to children who might otherwise find nothing under their tree on Christmas morning. This is the thirteenth year Delaware Electric Cooperative employees have offered a helping hand to the program. All of the presents collected will be given to children in Kent and Sussex Counties. According to Co-op employee Teresa McCann, who heads up the project each year, “It’s humbling to see so many employees purchase presents for kids in need. Our member service area was filled with presents this year and I am incredibly grateful to all employees who participated. Every child should have a gift to unwrap on Christmas morning.” Children’s Choice is a nonprofit social service agency that provides foster care and adoption services to children. The organization has more than one dozen offices in five states.
