Teachers Giving Back is a fund at Pike-Delta-York schools where teachers contribute to support Delta Outreach. Since school buildings have been closed due to COVID-19, teachers have been raising funds to help with food-insecurity in the community.
To date, the teachers have raised more than $350 and multiple trips have been made to Delta Outreach, operated by Bill and Gayle Schmidt, to deliver non-perishable food. Items include over 70 cans of tuna, chicken, cereal, soups and other requested items.
“My fellow teachers and I are proud to support our students and families in Delta,” said Scott Tenney, PDY Education Association president. “We all miss the daily interactions with the students, and we hope during this unprecedented time this fund can bring some much-needed relief to the Delta families.”
Delta Outreach is local food pantry. It serves local residents who are struggling to provide food for their families. The food pantry operates inside The Open Door, located at 104 Monroe St. The Delta Outreach phone number is 419-822-4407.
