Big Brothers Big Sisters gets a new logo and celebrates its volunteers
The organization’s main goal is to defend potential. They believe that all kids have potential, you just have to help them recognize it and use it.
On Tuesday, they held their defenders of potential celebration. The nonprofit threw a party for its big brothers and sisters, also known as bigs. These volunteers dedicate countless hours to their “siblings” and Big Brother, Big Sisters wanted to give back to them.
“They are the backbone of what we do, so we want to celebrate them,” said Savannah Seeger, the development director.
Bigs do everything from helping their littles with homework to taking them out ice skating or bowling. They serve as mentors and positive role models to kids between the ages of 5 and 17.
Many of the kids that participate in the program come from troubled backgrounds, broken homes, and foster care. Bigs step up to support these children, in situations where they may feel alone or unnoticed.
At the celebration, the organization unveiled a prototype of its new sign, which will be up within the next few months.
