Marsh Supper Club volunteers needed

Big Brothers Big Sisters information

The Marsh Foundation and Big Brothers Big Sisters need volunteers to be a “Big” for the Supper Club program.

There are several youths at the The Marsh Foundation looking forward to spending some time with a special friend a couple of times a month, beginning in mid-October. Without enough volunteers, some of these youngsters may not be able to participate in the program.

An area resident could be that special person!

In the Supper Club program, the “Bigs” and “Littles” get together on the first and third Thursdays of the month for supper and an activity. The theme this year is “Super Heroes”. Some of the things planned include a Christmas Party and Feast, All Group Birthday Party, art project at Wassenberg Art Center and touring lots of locations in Van Wert, including Central Insurance, the Van Wert Fire Department, Van Wert County Historical Museum and the Van Wert County Courthouse.

The volunteers also visit their “Little” at the youth’s group home once a month on a weekend day of their choosing for a couple of hours.

To participate in this program or for more information, contact Big Brothers Big Sisters at 419.584.2447, 866.670.BBBS or email: or Sherry Grone at The Marsh Foundation at 419.605.2512 or
