This Weekend, Just Do Something For BBBS
If you want to help the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Wasatch and Summit Counties, you don’t have to take on a major project.
Lacy Cole Rae, the manager of the program on the Wasatch Back, told KPCW that their major event is usually a bowling fundraiser in March. But the COVID-19 outbreak cancelled that.
Instead, they’re organizing the Do Something For Kids campaign for the Pioneer Day weekend.
Supporters are invited to go hiking, biking, boating, gardening—even take a nap. Take photos of your activity and post them to social media.
You’re also invited to contact them online at “bbbsu.org.” to make a donation. Rae said their goal for the campaign is $15,000.
She said the program for Wasatch and Summit serves 160-180 youngsters every year.
Right now, they’re in the middle of their “60 Men in 60 Days” campaign, which began June 15th and runs until August 15th. Rae said that women volunteer at a higher rate than men, so they have a need for Big Brothers. They have six boys on a wait list currently.
She said the commitment is for one year. Mentors meet with their younger Brother or Sister two to four times a month. You can contact Rae at 649—9366.
