2017 Capital Campaign


WHY IS PEOPLE IN NEED, INC. OF DELAWARE COUNTY OHIO (PIN) CONDUCTING A CAPITAL CAMPAIGN?

The original PIN Capital Campaign was initiated in 2008 to purchase a larger facility and provide PIN with the necessary resources which would allow us to better serve our Delaware County neighbors.  Thanks to your generosity we were able to purchase our facility on Johnson Drive.  However, the financial climate at the time prevented us from achieving 100% of our funding goal.

FAST FORWARD TO 2017…Delaware County has grown and the need for PIN’s services has grown as well!  The resources we had in 2008, and have used for the past 9 years, are no longer sufficient to maintain the level of service needed in our county.  At the same time, because funding priorities are always changing, the PIN Emergency Services Programs (Eviction Prevention, Emergency Medical Assistance, and Emergency Utility Assistance) need to find new sources of support.  As a result, we are once again asking for your help and support!
