GREENWOOD, Del. - Delaware Electric Cooperative employees have helped to brighten the Christmas season for dozens of children across Delaware. Through the Children’s Choice program, Co-op employees bought and wrapped presents for nearly 50 needy children.

This is the sixth year Delaware Electric Cooperative employees have offered a helping hand to the program. All of the presents collected will be given to children in Kent and Sussex Counties.
