Big Brothers Big Sisters celebrates 40 years with Big 40 project

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Prince George is celebrating its 40th anniversary in Prince George with its Big 40 project.

The Big 40 Project encourages individuals, businesses and organizations to come together to create a $40,000 legacy fund that will be used to grow programming throughout the community and region.  The project is asking for $40 donations to commemorate 40 years of mentoring in Prince George.  Individuals who donate to this campaign will be recognized on the 40th anniversary legacy wall set to debut September 2019.  While the project is suggesting a $40 donation there is set donation levels and all donations no matter the size will stay in Prince George and support the mentoring programs being run by the agency. The Prince George Canadian Tire has committed the first $2,500 of the $40,000 goal.

“Over the last 40 years our agency has seen exciting changes and this is because of the ongoing support of our community,” said Tim Bennett, Executive Director, in a news release.  “Together we can create a legacy for our programs, our children and community.  We need your help to ensure each local child has a network of caring and consistent adults.”

Tax deductible donations can be made online at bit.ly/bbbspg40, over the phone at 250.563.7410 or in person at the Big Brothers Big Sisters office located at 777 Kinsmen Place.  You can also emailkarrie.johnston@bigbrothersbigsisters.ca and request a pledge form be emailed to you.
