Because of this special segment they are now matched, but there are so many more that are waiting for an adult friend to move them from the list. Someone like you!
"Life's most persistent and urgent question is, What are you doing for others?"
As we celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with this National Day of Service, BBBS challenge you to honor Dr. King by serving others, not just today but this year. Consider becoming a Big Brother or Big Sister to a child in our program. We have over 130 children waiting for you to answer this call.
