Delta Adopt-A-Family
This year Delta employees, Board members, and residents adopted a family of eight from Eaton County over the holiday season.  Nearly $800 was raised in addition to food and gift donations between Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Through the generosity of nearly 50 individuals and area businesses we were able to bring holiday cheer to this family.  

A special thank you goes out to the Tractor Supply Stores on Grand River and in Williamston for their generous donations of winter outdoor clothing and to the Delta Township Lowes Store, which donated a Christmas tree and decorations to this family.  

Thank you to everyone that donated this year.  You all help to make Delta Township a great place to live, work, GIVE, and play.

Happy Holidays!
