Welcome to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Berks County, PA
Start SOMETHING! Because a LITTLE TIME = BIG REWARDS!!

Thank you to all who participated in the 34th Annual Bowl For Kids' Sake -- sponsored by National Penn!  We had over 80 bowling teams throughout the three days of bowling (April 9th at Hiester Lanes and April 23rd & 24th at Berks Lanes).  Final numbers are still being run, but we raised over $65,000 to support our four mentoring programs serving Berks County youth facing adversity!
 
Stay tuned for additional BFKS news though!  We will be announcing our GRAND PRIZE winner...$500 worth of Boscovs gift cards.  All bowlers who individually raised $100 or more are eligible for the Grand Prize drawing.  We will also have our winners of the BIG Raffle and other fun-filled facts from this great event.

We need YOU!
    
Friendship is a powerful thing!  It's fun; most anyone can be a friend; and it's important.  Experiencing fun activities together and forming a trusting bond with a child can have a powerful and positive impact on the child.     We've all had someone in our lives -- other than a parent -- who made a difference to us.  This is what you can do for a child in our program.  It's really pretty simple...it's a matter of making yourself available on a consistent basis; it's having fun with a Little Brother or Little Sister; it's listening to them talk about whatever is going on in their lives; it's a series of small, teachable moments that -- in the end -- make a BIG diffference.  Just a "Little Time = Big Rewards" with YOUR help!
