Blue River Services Inc. staff in Corydon welcomed two visitors Feb. 3 from the Indiana Gaming Commission. Agents Jason Gallman and Jeff Barger brought bags of clothes, coats, shoes, toys, office supplies, toiletries and stuffed animals.

Organized by Kristy Snider, Gaming Enforcement supervisor, and Chad Daggy, assistant supervisor, at the local commission office stationed at Caesars Southern Indiana in Bridgeport, the charitable donation drive took place during January.

“Since we work in Harrison County,” said Snider, “we wanted to give back to our community.”

She and her team worked all month to collect the things that will now be appreciated by the young adults served by Blue River’s youth shelters and permanent supportive housing. There were even some items for younger kids that will be shared with the agency’s in-school therapeutic program and Jill’s Hope, transitional housing for victims of domestic violence and their children.

Blue River Services expressed appreciation to Snider, Daggy, Barger, Gallman, Brad Graves, Josh Gallman, Jeremy Arnold, Larry Hawkins and Ty Eblen for their generosity.
