Over 50 local businesses and 800 people had fun taking part in Bowl For Kids Sake 2016 presented by Tim Hortons in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Windsor Essex to raise over $62,000.
All the funds raised will stay in our community and go directly towards supporting 6 different mentoring programs run by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Windsor Essex to match children with caring adult volunteers and mentors.
These programs are proven to be instrumental in reducing bullying and other related negative behavior such as lack of interest in school, truancy, low self-esteem, and drug and alcohol abuse.
Mentoring helps kids learn the importance of helping others and growing up to be more civic-minded adults. Changing the course of young lives can in turn change the community’s future.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Windsor Essex currently supports over 750 children through these programs. Each time a child is paired with a mentor, or introduce a group of children to group programs, something incredible is started; a life‐changing relationship built on friendship, trust, and empowerment. For just a few hours a couple of times a month, you can help a child succeed.
Individuals interested in volunteering as mentors with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Windsor Essex can call (519) 945-6232 or visit their website at www.bigbrothersbigsisterswe.ca
