GET INVOLVED

Besides being a donor, there are lots of other ways to get involved with Big Brothers Big Sisters.

You can help give the children in our community the support they deserve. You can recommend a Big or a Little, help spread the word in person or via social media, or volunteer to help out at events. You can donate household items, make us your designated charity on Amazon Smile, or help us secure our future through a legacy gift.

SPREAD THE WORD

Tell your friends and family about the difference a Big can make in the life of a vulnerable child. Be an influencer and share our posts on your social media platforms. Do you have ties to a company or organization that might be interested in partnering with us? If so, help us connect.

VOLUNTEER YOUR TIME

You can volunteer to join a committee to help plan special events like Bowl for Kids’ Sake, or you can volunteer to help out on the day of the event. Or to get even more involved, you might consider joining our board of directors.

RECOMMEND A BIG OR A LITTLE

Send us the name and contact details for a friend or family member you think might make a great Big–no special skills required. Or let us know about a Little who could benefit from having an extra caring adult in their life.

FOLLOW US ON SOCIAL MEDIA
