'Friends' program needs volunteers Big Friends-Little Friends, Inc. is nearing its seventh anniversary serving youth in Clay and Union counties, and is continuing to grow.
Youth in the program range from 5 to 15 years old, and spend two hours a week with their adult mentors. Ashley would like a Big Friend in North Sioux City, and Brendan would like a male volunteer to share time with him in Vermillion.
To apply as a volunteer, please contact John Gille at 1-605-356-2571 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The program continues to expand because of donations to the United Way of Vermillion, as well as major donations from AaLadin Industries, the Elk Point Lions and the Elk Point Commercial Club, Mary and Jon Nelson, the Vermillion Knights of Columbus, and support from other businesses and individuals. All donations are 100 percent deductible, as this is a qualified 501 (C)3 agency.
