Pillar Award finalist
Marley is a 3-year-old girl who really, really wanted to go to Walt Disney World. As much as it would mean to any child to get to meet Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and the gang in person, it would be even more special for Marley. She had acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
The team at Delta Energy learned about Marley’s situation through the Make-A-Wish Foundation and sprang into action. Through various fundraising efforts, Delta quickly raised $6,700 to cover the expense of the trip and provide spending money for Marley and her family.
But the company didn’t stop there. Delta held a welcome home party for Marley and her family when they returned from their trip. The party included several of Marley’s favorite things, including light and dark pink M&Ms and Mickey Mouse cake pops. In addition, the family was presented with a steppingstone handmade by a Delta employee that included several scenes from Marley’s favorite Disney movies. The scenes were meticulously recreated with colored glass that was set in the stone.
Efforts like that have made Delta such a special place under the leadership of founder and President Sheri Tackett. The company has dealt with its own internal challenges when employees or friends and family of employees became sick. In every instance, the company stepped up and did whatever it could to offer support. It’s just the way things are done at Delta Energy.
