I have worked with BBBS of the Bluegrass now for 3 years not only as a Big but also in the office in Danville. As a precaution against the mentioned issue happening again there are many checks and balances that have been put in place to insure that it does not occur again. It is a truly great charity and it is unfortunate that sometimes people take advantage of a good thing for their own gains.
