Delaware Electric Cooperative employees provided Christmas gifts for dozens of children this holiday season. Partnering with Children’s Choice, co-op employees donated presents for children in need.

The Children’s Choice program helps provide gifts to children who might otherwise find nothing under the tree on Christmas morning. This is the 16th year DEC employees have offered a helping hand to the community to make the season a bit brighter. All presents were distributed to children in Kent and Sussex counties.

According to co-op employee Teresa McCann, who heads up the project each year, “We look forward to shopping for the children in the community each year. It’s an amazing sight to see the office filled with gifts. Everyone deserves to have something to open on Christmas, and we’re grateful to all the employees who have generously participated.”

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.
