100 Bigs in 100 Days

Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Laurel Region is launching an aggressive volunteer recruitment campaign titled “100 Bigs in 100 Days.” The theme of the campaign seeks to inspire those who are looking to “Step Up” and  help a child.  

“Our agency needs quality mentors to guide and support children facing adversity in Westmoreland and Fayette Counties,” says Kelli Belanger, CEO.  “We hope to make everyone aware that through mentoring, the life of a child can be changed in just minutes a week.  Much like the importance of time in recreational activities, such as an athletic event, dedicating that same amount of time to a child in-need can provide life-impacting outcomes.”   

The goal of the campaign is to obtain 100 Big Brother/Big Sister applications in a 100-day timeframe.  The volunteer recruitment campaign officially kicked off in-house at the agency’s annual summer Agency Picnic July 12th at Idlewild Park & Soak Zone. Publically, we will celebrate the campaign July 26th at our annual Guest Bartender and Rice-tini Event at Robokyo Sushi and Steak house.

WHAT WE ACHIEVE

Imagine how amazing it would be if every child had the opportunity to fulfill his or her individual potential….

Big Brothers Big Sisters is a strong and effective organization that is focused on providing that opportunity. This is good for the child, and it is good for our community. Through proven programs and initiatives, we mentor, nurture, and empower children who are facing adversities and difficulties, to succeed and realize what is possible for each of them. And a stronger child becomes a stronger adult in a stronger community.

We are already doing great work, but we are committed to getting even better by responding more closely to our local communities’ needs.
