There are many ways you can give back to help strengthen the community. You can give your friendship to children and adults through our programs; you can give donations that support the many events and programs sponsored by JBBBS; or you can give through your regular activities like supporting JBBBS via AmazonSmile. On #GivingTuesday, how will you give? Below are more details about how you can make a difference today.
- Volunteer: At Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters, we believe it takes a village – and a Big Brother or Sister is an important part of it. A “Big” is a mentor – an additional source of encouragement, guidance, fun and friendship for a child or teen who could benefit from the connection. We also believe in the power of mentoring-friendship extends to adults with disabilities in our Friend 2 Friend programs. Click here for information about these two programs.
- Donate: At JBBBS, we help to connect children to adult mentors, and we introduce adults who have disabilities to new friends in their communities. In this way, and in the spirit of chazak v’nithazaik (strengthening one another), we seek to support and empower individuals and families to engage, to participate actively in the life of their communities, to live inspired and to inspire others. A monetary donation of any amount can help us further strengthen our mission and connect to more children and adults in need. Click here for more information on how to donate.
