Big Brothers Big Sisters Needs Funds to Match Waiting Kids and Volunteers
The Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Brazos Valley works to help children reach their potential through professionally supported one-to-one relationships within a structured program that has proven highly effective in helping youth learn to make good choices, avoid risky behavior, and to stay in school through high school graduation.
Currently, there are more than 100 Brazos Valley kids matched to a Big Brother or Big Sister, but there are nearly 100 kids on the waiting list. Over 300 volunteers are also available, but financial support is needed to provide necessary services to match the children and volunteers.
“I've been on the local resource board of BBBS Brazos Valley since day one and I've seen the positive impact that we have on kids,” said Roland Schweitzer, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Brazos Valley Board Member and Volunteer. “It's always hard to ask people for money, but the pain of seeing kids go without mentors is much worse.”
Your donation can go a long way in helping The Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Brazos Valley to keep kids in school and out of trouble.
