Autumn 2016

 Del-One FCU and the Del-One Foundation are focused on giving back to the community.  The Del-One Foundation raises funds throughout the year for charitable purposes to benefit the residents of Delaware.  Yesterday, 11/29 “Giving Tuesday” kicked off our Holiday Spirit Give Back campaign!  The Foundation donated an additional $7000 to Clothing Our Kids, a local organization whose mission is to “improve the lives of at-risk elementary school children by providing them with essential school clothing”.  The Del-One Foundation also sponsored and participated in the Clothing Our Kids annual golf tournament in October, and members and staff of Del-One collected and donated over 15 bags of clothing to this amazing organization.  #GiveBack  #GivingTuesday  #DelOneWay
