Versailles Eagles recently presented the Cancer Association of Darke County with a donation of $1,000. Earlier this year, they donated $3,000 to the organization, as well. The Eagles donate to many other community causes as well including Versailles Community Scholarship Fund, Center for Neurology Development, Versailles Area Historical Society, Children’s Shrine Hospital, Versailles Area Charily Foundation and many school functions.

The Cancer Association appreciates this generous gift and will use the monies to help Darke County patients battling cancer. The organization is overseen by a volunteer board that determines how donations are to be used, etc. The association is a 501c3 nonprofit recognized by the government. The only requirement to receive benefits is to reside in Darke County and have a confirmed diagnosis of cancer. The benefit period begins the day the office is contacted.

The association partners with United Way and is not affiliated with the American Cancer Society or Relay for Life.

There is always a need for volunteers, especially volunteer drivers.

If you would like to volunteer or make a donation, please contact Christine at the office 937-548-9960. Please send donations to Cancer Association of Darke County, PO Box 781, Greenville, OH 45331. If you have questions, feel free to call the office which is open on M-W-F from 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Please leave a detailed message if no answer and someone will return your call.

Thank you for your much needed support.
