Cindy Metzger of First Federal Bank discusses contribution options with United Way of Greater Lima President and CEO Philip Hayne, as Delphos Co-chair Bob Schulte looks on.
DELPHOS — Delphos has been charged with raising $38,000 this year in its annual United Way Campaign.
United Way of Greater Lima President and CEO Phil Hayne and local Co-chair Bob Schulte hosted an open house Thursday at Spherion to kick off the campaign.
“We have increased the goal by 10 percent and are hoping to increase donors in Delphos by 15 this year,” Hayne said. “We are focusing on getting new donors on top of the donors we have. If we can get three or four new donors, the dollars will follow.”
Local workers can expect to pledge cards soon.
