As part of Always There — a yearlong campaign to recognize the 50th anniversary of Ohio’s County Boards of Developmental Disabilities — Delaware County Board of Developmental Disabilities will be partnering with People In Need, Inc. of Delaware County during a Week of Service July 17-21.
The Always There campaign marks the establishment of Ohio’s 88 county boards by the Ohio General Assembly in 1967. The theme reflects the continuity of support, promotion of opportunity, and history of partnership county boards have offered to people with developmental disabilities and their families throughout the past, in the present, and in the future.
“The Week of Service is an opportunity for us to say thank you and give back to residents in Delaware County who have supported us and the people and families we serve for more than 50 years,” said Kristine Hodge, Superintendent.
DCBDD will be hosting a week-long food and supplies drive for PIN. The Board is encouraging all community members to participate by bringing donations to any of the following locations: Delaware YMCA, Delaware County District Library, Orange Library, Ostrander Library, Powell Library, and Delaware County Board of Developmental Disabilities.
For detailed listing of the food and supplies needed or for more information about the Week of Service, contact Anne Miller at 740-201-5810 or Anne.Miller@dcbdd.org.
