I have taken part as a committee member for Big Brothers and Big Sisters Fund-raising Events. The other volunteers that I have worked with along with the staff are very passionate about making a difference in the lives of children!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
many ways! At events I have had the opportunity to meet several Bigs and Littles and talk to them about the difference they make in each others lives. Big Brothers Big Sisters has proven results as you can see on their profile! Children need a positive mentor in their lives and BBBSMMC works very hard to make sure that every child that needs or wants a mentor gets one!
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
try to get even more people to volunteer their time as Bigs, Committee Members, Board Members, or administrative volunteers. They need more helping hands!
