Big Brothers Big Sisters of Shelby & Darke County held its 1st annual Roll for Kids Sake event on Thursday, February 12th at Rolling Hills Skate in Sidney. Approximately 135 people, comprised of community volunteer mentors, Littles, BBBS staff, and the general public, were in attendance this year. During the festivities and the excitement of skating, apples (donated by Freshway Foods) and snacks (donated by Mike Meyer, Meyers Garage) were available, as well as prizes being awarded.

Currently there are 80 community volunteer mentors and 100 high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors who volunteer with the school-based Big Buddies Program throughout Shelby & Darke County. 13 children in Shelby County are waiting to be matched with a volunteer mentor. The Big Brothers Big Sisters Board of Directors are currently holding a recruitment challenge to recruit volunteers to work with these children who are ready to be matched.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Shelby & Darke County is a non-profit United Way member, social service agency. If you would like more information on entering your child in the program or on becoming an active volunteer, please call 492-7611 or 547-9622.
