Big Brothers Big Sisters of Shelby & Darke County secures local funding to assist with Mentoring programs

The Harry D. Stephens Memorial fund recently made a donation of $1,617 to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Shelby & Darke County. Additionally, the Greenville Rotary Club donated $1,000 to the local agency. Both of these donations are specific to the Darke County program and will assist the agency in continuing to serve children in Darke County. “The support we receive from these grants is truly a blessing for our agency. It enables us to continue to serve children in need of a mentor in the Darke County area,” stated Executive Director, Jennifer Bruns.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Shelby & Darke County’s mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever. Their vision is for all children to achieve success in life. One-to-one mentoring programs provide support, activities, education, and most importantly, a mentor for children who may be considered at-risk. The children involved in this program have the opportunity to engage in fun, social, and academic enrichment activities with their mentor. Thanks to generous donations like that from the Harry D. Stephens Memorial fund and Greenville Rotary Club, mentor and mentee matches in the Darke County area continue to grow and help children in a positive way.

Big Brothers Big Sisters is a non-profit United Way member agency. If you would like to become an event sponsor, donor, volunteer, or learn more about how you can make a difference in a child’s life, contact our local agency at 937-492-7611, 937-547-9622, or go to for more information.
