Hello BBBSCM Friends and Supporters,
We're sure by now you are getting excited for the warmer months ahead and so are we! This winter, we have seen our Bigs really show their dedication and get creative when planning activities with their Little. Whether that means playing new games on Zoom or spending time outdoors, we're so grateful for our wonderful Bigs!
Before February comes to a close, it is important that we acknowledge that it is Black History Month. Our agency is committed to being one that embraces diversity. BBBSCM is proud to be a part of the stories of mentorship, change, and impact from our Black Bigs, Littles, and Parents. Throughout the month, we have been highlighting influential Black youth in our Nation on our social media channels. We hope you have enjoyed learning about these amazing young people. If you haven't seen these posts, click on the social media icons at the bottom of this email.
We'd also like to remind you of our new partnership with the Hartsprings Foundation. The Hartsprings Foundation collects used, unwanted clothing on behalf of Big Brothers Big Sisters. The donations are purchased by Savers and the proceeds benefit our programs. If you are interested in learning more about our partnership, please visit www.bbbscm.org/give. If you would like to schedule a pick-up, please call Hartsprings directly at (413) 732-7111.
Thank you for taking the time to read our February newsletter and for standing with us to defend the potential of over 1,000 children!
The Team at Big Brothers Big Sisters
