Each year Community Action Agency of Delaware County, Inc provide Christmas for needy children. This year with the help of donors sponsoring the children, we provided 1,165 children a special Christmas in Delaware County. Without this event children may go without any toys from Santa. This is a very special event that takes a lot of coordinating and employees are heavily involved and we wouldn't be able to make this happen if not for the employees
A combination of being involved with helping the less fortunate and working with a great group of people.
The work environment is excellent as are my coworkers. Never a dull moment. Something new every day. Work is rewarding in that we are always doing something to benefit people in need.
It allows me to provide service to people in need.
It gives me great pleasure to help people every day.
I am helping others and I have a excellent supervisor.
