“The Delta County Joint Information System has recently launched our COVID-19 Community Response Campaign, Delta County Resilient; the Delta County Drive-Thru Donation Day falls perfectly in line with our initiative. Delta County is nothing if not resilient, and no one comes together better than Delta County does, in a crisis. We are hoping that if there are Automotive Shops, Dentist offices, or Construction Companies that have excess, that they would consider donating them,” said Delta County Public Information Officer, Darnell Place-Wise.
