As a former recrutier for BBBS, I had the priviledge of seeing the magic that happens when a caring adult is willing to give a few hours a week to a child who just needs someone in their life to befriend them. Each match provides an opportunity for a life changing relationship! Thanks to each and everyone of you, past, present and future Big Brothers and Big Sisters!
