BINGO volunteers needed monthly

On the first Wednesday of every month from 5 to 9:30 p.m., FYI helps with the BINGO event held at Mary Help of Christians in Fairborn. A portion of all proceeds is donated to FYI as a thank you for our help. We need five volunteers each month for the event. To date, that donation averages around $300 monthly.

If you would like to play BINGO, doors open at 5 p.m. and Instants start selling at 5:30 p.m. Early Bird Games start at 6:15 p.m. and regular games start at 7 p.m. Packages start at $12 (12 faces). Last series of the night is a $1,000 cover all in 50 numbers or less, 51 numbers for $750 and then played out for $500. (Prize reduced if under 80 players.)

FYI Looking for Churches to Host Mother’s Day Flower Sales

FYI is looking forward to honoring the mothers in our community on Mother’s Day, May 10. Our annual flower sale provides an affordable way to bless moms on this special day, while it also blesses the mothers we serve as all the proceeds go to fund FYI programs such as the Parenting Network.

We will offer a single decorated rose for $3, carnations in a vase for $8 and a bouquet of a dozen flowers for $24. All flowers are fresh, very affordable and delivered just days before Mother’s Day.

We are looking for churches that would like to be part of the sale. Local churches play a major role in the sale by taking orders and helping us distribute the flowers on Mother’s Day. Several churches also purchase flowers from FYI for their congregations, honoring the mothers in their church while empowering other moms through the profits that aid FYI’s family-centered programs. It is a fundraiser for FYI, but more than that, it keeps us all focused on honoring and championing the vital impact of motherhood.

For more information or to sign up a church, call us at 937-845-0403.
