Empowering to hold first volunteer meeting

GREENVILLE – Empowering Darke County Youth will be holding a volunteer organizational meeting at Tribute Funeral Homes Greenville, 1000 N. Broadway, Thursday, March 22 at 7 p.m.

“Our kids are the future of our community,” said Melissa Eve, Assistant Program Coordinator. “If you agree, then come help us. We have a job for you!”

She added Empowering Darke County Youth needs volunteer tutors, but acknowledges not everyone is comfortable in that role. The program also needs people willing to help plan and conduct fundraising events, recruit volunteers and spread the word through social media and personal contacts.

“I believe we’ve had a huge impact on our community,” said Empowering President Eric Fee. “We’ve made some great strides working with kids who need help, through our Edison State and adult volunteers, but the need is still greater than our ability to meet it.

“We’ve just started,” he continued, “but we can’t do it alone. We need your help.”

“Stop in, join us for a light snack, and find out what you can do to help,” said Bob Robinson, Program Coordinator. “We had to start a waiting list for our After School Program last fall and it still exists today…

“Help us make sure no child has to wait for help in the future. See you at the meeting… and thanks!”

The Empowering Mission: Empowering Darke County Youth is a United Way Partner Agency providing After School and Summer Tutoring programs to assist students in the areas of language arts and math with the goal of Strong Students for a Strong Community.
