From all of us at Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Central Piedmont, we send you, your families and loved ones our heartfelt continued support during these uncertain times. We are here for you and encourage you to reach out if we can offer any support or guidance. The families we serve are facing some of their most challenging times. Families with fewer financial resources, now have fewer options as they navigate the new normal of remote learning as their child prepares to “go back” to school.
We wanted to update you that our Big Brothers Big Sisters Case Managers are focused on keeping existing Big/Little matches connected with innovative and creative support through phone calls, text messages, digital learning platforms and other technology enabled engagement tools. With the required social distancing, and without the continued and consistent mentoring from our Bigs, many of our littles could have escalating issues that they already face every day such as societal barriers, opportunity gaps and adversities including poverty and identity-based discrimination in their communities. But having their Big be there for them—even though not face-to-face—can make a huge impact. Mentoring means our Littles won’t have to face these barriers alone, these positive relationships help build confidence and resilience that keep them moving forward towards igniting their full potential and a great beginning to this coming school year
As we go into the school year we are facing challenges to sustaining the level of support to youth in our community that has been readily available in the past.This is due to two special events that were canceled and to the uncertainty of other regular streams of support.To support these essential solutions, we are graciously asking for your continued support in the protection, companionship and defense of our Littles. Your donation will help us continue to innovate new ways to virtually connect Bigs and Littles as well as support our organization in creating new matches and mentorships. We appreciate your thoughtful contribution now, more than ever, as we work to protect and serve our community’s youth
Will you consider making an investment of any amount to ensure our Littles aren’t left behind?
With each day, there are new challenges and obstacles to overcome, but we will weather this storm. Thank you for being a friend of Big Brothers Big Sisters, we know with your financial investment we are stronger together.
