Krotz Spring Benefiting Charities

The Delek Tournament for Hope in Krotz Springs Louisiana 2018

CHARITY INFORMATION

The Delek Fund for Hope was established in 2008 to support charities in the communities in which our employees and customers live and work. These communities include those served by each of our business interests. Krotz Springs Louisiana is one of those locations. The United Way has historically played a significant role in connecting donors with charitable organizations in this community. For this reason, the 2018 Delek Tournament for Hope in Krotz Springs will benefit the St. Landry-Evangeline United Way – thus reaching its sixteen partner agencies listed below.

 

Since 1957, St. Landry-Evangeline United Way has evolved as one of the most active and dynamic United Ways for its size in the country.  Serving St. Landry and Evangeline Parishes, St. Landry-Evangeline United Way has fully embraced the United Way Worldwide model of community impact.

The Mission of the St. Landry-Evangeline United Way :  To improve St. Landry and Evangeline parishes by assessing the needs of the communities, mobilizing leaders and citizens through collaboration and volunteerism, and providing resource support to create lasting positive changes in lives, neighborhoods, and communities, with a focus on the building blocks of a strong community, health, education, and financial stability.
