Empowering Darke County Youth
Local tutoring organization to hold fundraisers

Empowering Darke County Youth has two fundraisers planned, the first a Bob Evans Fundraiser on Tuesday and the second a car wash at Dave Knapp Ford Lincoln in August.

Pick up a flyer at Greenville Public Library from now through Tuesday, and at Edison Community College on Monday or Tuesday and enjoy a great meal at Bob Evans in Greenville. Present your flyer with your bill and you will also be supporting the Empowering Darke County Youth After School Program scheduled to begin in the fall.

Then on Aug. 13, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., give your vehicle(s) a bath courtesy of Empowering volunteers and Dave Knapp Ford Lincoln.

Thanks to many individual donors, the Chalmers family bake sales, plus support from businesses and organizations like Oliver Floyd Funeral Home, Rolling 50s Car Club, Rapid Printing, Ramco Electric Motors and Modern Mothers of Versailles, seven tutors have been able to help 43 students improve their education skills this summer. Most of these children are (or were) considered at-risk.

One young mother was especially grateful, noting her son was going to be held back until he received tutoring help. “Today, he reads not only above average in the district but also above average in the state,” she said, grinning.

She has offered to become one of Empowering’s growing volunteer force. Donations from the community will help the tutoring program reach more students this fall and into the spring. Donations may be mailed to Empowering Darke County Youth, PO Box 1113, Greenville 45331. More information? Email empoweringdarkecountyyouth@gmail.com or message Facebook Empowering Darke County Youth.

In the meantime, plan on a great meal at Bob Evans and giving your vehicle a bath at Dave Knapp Ford in August.
