Delta Systems helps people in need
Delta Systems Inc. in Streetsboro has traditionally collected food and money for the holidays, but this year, the company stepped up its donations "with the help of some very creative people on our 'Sunshine Committee,'" according to Marge Mellinger, the company's human resource manager.
"They had a 'Chinese Auction' with items donated by Delta employees and raised $821 for the food drive," she said.
"The auction had a little something for everyone -- handmade blankets, furniture, Christmas decorations and even two mystery boxes for the adventurous bidder."
Delta employee cash donations topped $1,354 plus a large container of donated food items, she said.
She said the family of Delta Systems CEO Elizabeth Barry also donated $1,800 to the cause for a total of $3,975 raised this year.
It is the most money ever collected at the company during its annual holiday drive, she said.
"Thanks to these generous contributions, we were able to donate to both the Streetsboro Community Pantry and the Streetsboro Christian Cupboard this year," she said.
"We are proud to be located in Streetsboro and happy to give back to the community," she added.
Delta Systems is located at 1734 Frost Road, Streetsboro.
