Help the Littles in our School-Based Mentoring Program!
Many local high school students give of themselves and their time to be Big Brothers and Sisters to our area elementary and middle school students (the Littles). They are the Littles' special friend and role model, offering attention, support and encouragement. Together, the Bigs and Littles work on homework, play games, read books, and work on arts and crafts projects.
How can YOU play a vital role in the lives of our school-based Littles? BBBSOC needs YOUR help to provide nutritional snacks, educational games, and arts and crafts for our growing school-based program throughout the Ocean County schools. Unfortunately, the meals and snacks provided in school are the only sustenance that many of our Littles receive on a daily basis, and the time spent with their Bigs is the only supportive time with a mentor or adult.
Your generous monetary donations will help offset the costs that BBBSOC incurs yearly purchasing healthy foods, educational games and arts and crafts projects and allow us to redirect the funding to growing the school-based program to more area schools so that we may help the ever expanding need of our children in the community.
