Garage Sale To Benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Shelby & Darke County

Fundraisers make mentoring matches possible,
such as Paul Workman, of Anna, and Wasfie Alshara,
of Sidney, who enjoy playing a game at the YMCA.
 Wasfie is the son of Jamie Daniel.
In conjunction with the Versailles Community Garage Sales, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Shelby & Darke County will be hosting a Garage Sale at the Versailles Vets Club. This event will be held Wednesday, August 3 from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm and Thursday, August 4 from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm.

Community members are welcome to donate gently used items to our fundraiser. Donations will be accepted at the Vets Hall Tuesday, August 2 from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm and Wednesday, August 3 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. Additional drop offs can be arranged in Versailles, Greenville, or Sidney, by calling the office at 937-547-9622 or 937-492-7611.

Locally, the two-county agency of Big Brothers Big Sisters now serves over 300 children in Shelby and Darke County through its community-based and High School Big Buddies mentoring programs. At this time the agency has 45 children on a waiting list in need of a volunteer mentor. It is hoped that this fundraising event will not only bring dollars to the local agency, but awareness of the need for volunteers.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Shelby & Darke County, a United Way member social service agency, is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to help children reach their full potential, by matching children with volunteers to develop and nurture quality relationships. The relationship is meant to guide each child toward becoming a confident, competent, and caring individual. Anyone interested in becoming a volunteer may call the office at 937-492-7611, 937-547-9622 or log on to the agency website at
