Big Brothers Big Sisters
In Support of Big Brothers Big Sisters
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwestern Michigan provides children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever. The organization currently serve children in a 5 county region in Northwestern Michigan.For over 50 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwestern Michigan has been bringing smiles to the faces of children by matching them with adult volunteers in fun and rewarding mentoring relationships. The impact it has on children in the program is priceless, and the heartwarming stories we've collected from Big and Littles in our program over the years are endless.Mentoring is a powerful thing. It’s fun, most anyone can be a mentor and it’s life-changing. By simply participating in fun activities together and forming a trusting bond with a child, it can potentially rewrite a child's future, for the better. However, for as big of an impact that mentoring makes on a child, you’ll be amazed at what it will do for you, too

Drive for 55

Kris Hoxie

🎳 Two BIG Auto Groups. One BIG Goal. Bill Marsh and SERRA of Traverse City are joining forces for Big Brothers Big Sisters (Bigs) with the goal of raising $55,000 - reaching 55 more northern Michigan children in need. With these funds, Bigs can match 55 children from their waitlist with caring adult mentors! When a child in need is matched with a mentor — someone who spends time with them on a consistent basis, someone who listens, and someone who cares — their entire world changes. They begin to discover opportunities and possibilities they never dreamed existed. Your donation to the Bigs Drive for 55 Fundraiser will help make a difference in the life of a child!
