Big Brothers Big Sisters St.
Catharines – Thorold and District is proud to be hosting our 9th Annual Wine, Women and Style on April 17th, 2016 at Queens Landing,
Niagara-on-the-Lake. We are incredibly grateful to our generous community
sponsors, donors and attendees who have supported us over the years. We
continue to offer our programs free to the children and families that need our
help and strive to ensure that every child who needs a mentor has a mentor.
While a value cannot be placed on
the happiness or resilience of a child, one can be placed on the hard costs of
providing necessary services to them. The costs associated with the program range
from supplying nutritious snacks, activity bins, volunteer recruitment,
training and match support by a professional Caseworker annually. It costs
$650.00 for a young girl to participate in the Go Girls! Program for one
year. The demand for the program has increased 5% annually. The
challenge for us will be to address the widening gap between what we can do and
what we can afford to do as the program receives no sustainable funding.
We’ve got some great things coming for this year’s Ride for
Kids Sake! Check back in to follow along with updates and details about the
Witnessing the transformation of a child into a confident young person is a remarkable thing.
