We have partnered with Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) many times in the past and enjoy participating in their Mini Golf for Kid’s Sake and Bowl for Kid’s Sake events.
They are a wonderful organization who support one-to-one mentoring for local youth and match youth to local mentors. They have a number of program options that are based in every elementary and middle school in the area, community-based, and everything in between. Their intentional care and support for the community is evident and we thank them for that.
There are many youth waiting to be matched with a mentor, and just a simple vote will help with this matching process. BBBS is especially in need of male mentors because of the nearly double amount of boys than girls on the waiting list, so consider volunteering if you’re able.
