By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Graham and Swain County Independent Brand Partners held a Bowl for Kids’ Sake (BFKS) event for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Western North Carolina on Nov. 5, 2016.

The Roth Family makes a BIG match for Kaleb

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Some Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies in the United States and Canada offer a program called Big Families. These “matches” include an at-risk child in the program and a family who would like to bond with and mentor the child together. The benefits of the program are shared exponentially by everyone involved. Many adults want to mentor, but don’t want to sacrifice time with their own children while they are away with a Little.
