SIDNEY – Big Brothers Big Sisters of Shelby & Darke County recently received a Walmart Giving grant from the Sidney Walmart Foundation to help support the BBBS with its mentoring needs of local children.
“As proud members of the Shelby County community we appreciate organizations such as Big Brothers Big Sisters and we are excited to see the work they do in the community. Being able to support community organizations such as Big Brothers Big Sisters with much needed funds is a very important and fundamental piece Walmart plays in the local community,” Sidney Walmart’s General Manager CJ Sharpe said.
