LATEST NEWS & EVENTS

IN THE COMMUNITY

Big Brothers Big Sisters Updates

Big Brothers Big Sisters knows that COVID-19 has hit our community and changed our normal way of life for the foreseeable future. One thing that has not changed is that kids still need their mentors, now more than ever.

As we look forward and start to plan match activities for Bigs & Littles as social distancing requirements begin to be loosened, your support will directly help our matches begin to reconnect in person. Many of our Bigs, like their littles, have been impacted by the virus and the economic hardships that have followed. We want to ensure that we can ease the burden of cost for match activities for the remainder of the year.

Our goal is to raise $6,000 to cover the cost of match activities through December 2020. All funds raised through our $1 day for 30 days campaign will provide a variety of no-cost activities for all matches across our service area.

Will you join us and help reach our mission?

POSTPONED: Bowl For Kids’ Sake

In the interest of public health & safety to all of our community stakeholders, our 2020 Bowl For Kids’ Sake fundraiser events will be postponed and will identify a date in the near future. We THANK YOU for your support and wish you safety & good health.

Resources for Bigs, Littles & Families during social distancing

Our young people and our whole community are facing a lot of disruption right now. It’s important that our youth know they are cared for by many people! Social distancing can lead to social isolation. We want people to be safe AND feel connected with others so we’re encouraging matches to stay in touch.
