Human beings have a basic need for social connections, care, and relationships. During this time of social distancing, human connection is even more essential! Mentoring relationships provide kids with vital connections – without them, kids are at risk.

By supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters Connect For Kids' Sake, you can play a vital role in keeping Bigs and Littles connected in Erie and Western Crawford Counties. Big Brothers Big Sisters is an essential resource in our community, and our staff members are working from home to make sure the Littles in our program stay virtually connected to their Bigs. We have taken immediate action to maintain and support the vital, life-changing mentoring relationships we facilitate and support professionally in order to fight social isolation of our young people and families.

Support Big Brothers Big Sisters today by donating or signing up to volunteer. With your help, we can keep kids connected and ensure every child's potential remains defended.

Your support will help us continue to come up with innovative ways to virtually connect our matches and continue to create new matches for the children on our waiting list.
