GREENVILLE – Greenville VFW Post 7262 Junior Vice Commander Don Dietrich presented a check to Bob Robinson, the program coordinator for Empowering Darke County Youth.
The donation will be used to help support Empowering’s after school program.
The presentation was made at the Coliseum at the Great Darke County Fair. The Post had T-shirts, hats and other memorabilia supporting the VFW efforts in the community.

“We would like to thank the VFW for joining us in our mission to give children an opportunity to succeed academically,” Robinson said. “We are beginning our third year in our after school program, our second at the Greenville Elementary and Intermediate School campus. We had a waiting list last year; VFW Post 7262 is going to help us eliminate it this year.”
