Zechar Baily Funeral Home Continues Empowering support

GREENVILLE - Empowering students and tutors join in thanking Zechar Bailey Funeral Home for its continuing support of their tutoring programs. Presenting the check to Empowering Volunteer Coordinator Chelsea Jones is Greg Zechar.

Zechar Bailey has a history of supporting programs to improve services to residents of the community. Its donation will help purchase supplies and snacks, as well as bring in licensed tutors and teachers to work with and oversee Edison State and adult volunteers.

Since its inception in March 2016, Empowering programs have provided over 6,000 contact hours to more than 200 students. The programs have elicited dozens of success stories for students who have taken consistent advantage of the services available to them. The Empowering program, along with the efforts of teachers and support staff, has been proven to show greater student improvement, or growth, than for those not in the program.

Help is still needed to finish the current school year and prepare for the Summer Tutoring Program. Anyone interested in helping, either tutoring or with program support or donations, should contact or Facebook Empowering Darke County Youth. If you would like more information, mark your calendar to join other volunteers Thursday, April 19 at 7 p.m., Tribute Funeral Home Greenville, 1000 N. Broadway for the next Empowering Volunteer Meeting.

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.
