Make a Child's Holiday-Support Big Brothers Big Sisters of El Dorado County
● By Brenna McGowan
order for every child to succeed in life, they need a positive role
model. Big Brothers and Big Sisters of El Dorado County provides at-risk children with a caring adult who shares their experience, and gives each child the opportunity to thrive.
Each volunteer--BIG's--bring a positive influence into a child's life:
They are friends that strengthen relationships!
They open doors to a bigger world!
They encourage children to dream!
They give them hope!
- There are currently 9,901 children in El Dorado County facing adversity.
- BBBS of El Dorado County serves 203 of these children
- There are 27 more on their wait list
- It costs $1,140 per year for professional staff to screen, train, match and support one BIG (a caring adult) to one LITTLE (the children).
These children need your help!
This holiday season, be a part of something BIG! Help change the world . . .one child at a time!
