Natalie Thompson, Program Director from Big Brother/Big Sister reports:
Our mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported 1-to-1 relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
As always, we are currently enrolling volunteers to mentor children on our waiting list, and have a larger need for male mentors, in particular. We also hope to be able to serve more children in the area, but can do so only with the support of the community. For information on how to volunteer or how to support our efforts, call us at 859-231-8181 or email Natalie Thompson, Program Director, at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Jack Vasel Memorial Fund
The JVMF raises money for fellow gamers who find themselves in crisis. For the second year, Lexicon is proud to help support the JVMF by offering an item for auction. The auction only runs through early November, so check it out now. You can of course support the JVMF year-round through direct donations.
Kentucky Childrens Hospital
The Western Kentucky Ghostbusters are the largest and most active Ghostbuster franchise in Kentucky. Their courteous and efficient staff have been serving the Bluegrass since 2003 in everything from parades, movie screenings, conventions, and charity fundraisers. The team will be raising money all weekend long at LexiCon in support of the Kentucky Children’s Hospital. So if you’re troubled by strange noises in the middle of the night, who ya gonna call?
