13 Days of Giving Spotlight: Big Brothers Big Sisters

13 Days of Giving: Big Brothers Big Sisters

Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Heart of Georgia serves children in Baldwin, Bibb, Crawford, Greene, Hancock, Houston, Jasper, Jones, Laurens, Monroe, Peach, Twiggs, Washington, and Wilkinson Counties.  

They have been providing help for community kids since 1953.   Children who have mentors go to school more often, get higher grades, get along with others better, and have higher levels of self esteem.

To help with this project you can volunteer to be a mentor, or donate holiday items for families.

For more information on how you can help with Big Brothers/Big Sisters, call 478-745-3984, e-mail agency@bbbsheartga.org or visit www.bbbsheartga.org

We'll have more on 13WMAZ Eyewitness News.
