Can't be a Big Brother or Sister but would like to help the School Based program in some other way? Or maybe you are already a volunteer but would like to become even more involved. Either way, we are happy to oblige! One of the best ways to help out Big Brothers Big Sisters is by spreading the word -- talk to your friends, family and co-workers about what a great time you're having as a Big, and soon enough, they'll want to join in on the fun! If you're an afterschool volunteer, you could even bring a friend along to a session and let them see for themselves how rewarding it is.
We are also always happy to receive new or gently used games, school supplies or craft items. We're specifically seeking the following items for projects we plan to do in the 2012-13 school year:
- Pictures from Christmas cards, holiday-related magazines or catalogs
- Wire hangers
- Fabric scraps
If your child is part of one of our afterschool programs and you have items you'd like to donate, simply send them along with your child. If not, just give us a call or drop off the items at our office. Thank you in advance!
