Delano School employees dig deep, give big, for local charity

Each year around the holidays, Delano Public Schools holds a district-wide fundraising campaign for the United Way. The final numbers came in for the 2013 effort and, through the donations of nearly 100 employees, the school district raised $8,811 in support of the Delano-Loretto United Way organization.

The Delano High School staff will be recognized with a luncheon. The Delano Middle School staff increased its contributions by $1,000 over last year’s drive.

Teachers Karen Hohenstein, John Bingea and Kalsey Zachman, along with Diane Johnson, Delano Community Education Director, led their building’s campaigns this year.
