The New Castle Prevention Coalition (N.C.P.C.) presented Del-One FCU President/CEO Ron Baron with a Community Partner Award at their 1st Annual Awards Ceremony and Banquet on Saturday, April 2, 2022. The N.C.P.C. believes that “great people are not raised – they are born, and they are strategically placed in communities to help others.” Sandra Smithers, Co-Chair of the N.C.P.C. wrote to CEO Baron, “we have had an opportunity to experience your greatness by what you have done for the Route 9 community with Del-One’s Banking Desert Initiative.” The Banking Desert Initiative was established to benefit an area in the Route 9 Corridor where residents needed the services of a financial institution. Del-One placed a micro-branch at the Rose Hill Community Center in 2019 and continues to support the Route 9 area community by sponsoring and participating in various events and holding round-table discussions, small business forums and financial literacy presentations for the residents.
