Big Brothers Big Sisters seeks community’s support

Elbow bumps and “social distancing” have become new societal norms – and essential to help slow the spread of COVID-19.

For nonprofits, that has often meant postponing or canceling their community fundraising events. It’s a difficult decision for many of these nonprofits, including Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bucks County (BBBSBC), which has postponed its Bowl for Kids Sake fundraising events.

Even as nonprofits follow the protocols designed for the safety of their staff and the community, they’re coming up with creative ways to fund their important work. For instance, BBBSBC’s idea is to invite community members to support the agency by becoming a “Match Maker.” For $100 a month, an individual can fully support a match for an entire year. This contribution can help a vulnerable child in the community get the encouragement, guidance and support they need to change their path and make better choices for their future.

Another option is to support BBBSBC through its Go Fund Me Page. And, yet another simple way to help is to donate your leftover change through the “Coin Up” App.
