Auto dealer helps recruit mentors in Danville
DANVILLE — Toyota of Danville and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Vermilion County are joining forces to recruit mentors for area youth.
Toyota, at 2106 Georgetown Road in Tilton, will host a recruitment event from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.
There will be popcorn, soda, a bounce house for the kids and lots of prizes. There also will be a drawing for a Holiday World package including four tickets, beach towels, two McDonald's water bottles, an Igloo cooler and a $20 Walmart gift card.
In addition, for each car sold on Saturday, Toyota will donate $100 to Big Brothers Big Sisters to help ensure that one-to-one mentoring continues in Vermilion County. People can also stop by and make a donation.
Big Brothers Big Sisters provides one-to-one community-based and school-based mentoring for children throughout the county. Every year, nearly 100 youth remain on a waiting list, according to Executive Director Rose Henton.
Big Brothers Big Sisters representatives will be at the event to answer any questions and complete volunteer applications. Volunteers must pass a layered background check.
