Big Brothers Big Sisters secures funding

GREENVILLE - The Harry Stephens Memorial recently made a donation of $1,000 to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Shelby and Darke County. Additionally, the Greenville Rotary donated $500 to the local agency. Both of these donations are specific to the Darke County program and will assist the agency in continuing to serve “at risk” children in Darke County. “The support we receive from these The Harry Stephens Memorial and Greenville Rotary is truly a blessing for our agency. It enables us to continue to serve the children in need of a mentor in the Darke County Community.” reports Jennifer Bruns Big Brothers Big Sisters Executive Director

Mentoring programs provide support, activities, education, and most importantly, a mentor for children who may be considered at-risk of an abusive environment. The children involved in this program have the opportunity to engage in fun, social and academic enrichment activities with the interaction of their mentor. It is their goal to teach these children, through their relationship with their mentor, skills in managing life in a high-risk environment.

Thanks to generous donations like that from the Harry Stephens Memorial Foundation and Greenville Rotary matches in Darke County area continue to grow and help keep affecting children in a positive way.
