They say, the more you give, the more you get back – and I just LOVE giving within our community. Hi, I’m Sherri Echols, Broker Associate with RE/MAX Bryan – College Station.
The holiday season has past, but the spirit of giving lives on. This year, I’ve decided to adopt the Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Brazos Valley Fund a Friendship program and give to them throughout the year. Won’t you join me? Any amount is a big help.
$25 provides fun activities for Bigs and Littles
$50 provides a Big and Little with their very first visit
$100 enrolls a child in the BBBS program
$250 finds, trains and matches a volunteer with a child
$1,000 supports a match (Big & Little) for one year
Big brothers and sisters provide encouragement, friendship, guidance, and support to children in need of a positive and caring adult role model. The mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Brazos Valley is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one mentoring relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
National and local studies show that children who have role models are more likely to improve in school and in their relationships with family and friends, and less likely to skip school or use illegal drugs or alcohol. Students who are successful in school are less likely to drop out, abuse drugs or commit crimes. In fact, the success of children enrolled in Big Brothers Big Sisters was proven in a nationwide randomized study.
As the year goes on, I’ll keep you updated on Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Brazos Valley’s activities and the good they bring to the community. In the meantime, if you’d like to donate, please go to my website and find the donate button. All donations are tax-deductible to the extent of the law and will go to a great cause.
If you’d prefer to donate to another local charity, then consider this your invitation to join me on my journey of giving all year long! We have the chance to strengthen and grow our community through giving – and the rewards we get back are priceless! For more information, don’t hesitate to reach out! I’m Sherri Echols, a helping hand for a happy home.
