Del-One has supported Project Search since 2014 with financial literacy presentations. Project Search is a school-to-work program for young adults with cognitive disabilities designed to ease the transition from school to adult life. In November, Del-One’s Georgetown Branch Manager, Veronica Nhan-Nock attended a parent orientation meeting for Project Search Nanticoke. Terri Hitchens, a parent whose child is a part of Project Search, stated, “I’ve been afraid to open an account for my daughter. Once she transitions and has a job with a paycheck she is going to need an account. Financial literacy is something I never thought about until now. Thank you for sharing an overview on what you are going to cover in class”. For more information on Project Search in Sussex County, visit www.nanticoke.org/community-outreach/projectsearch/.
