Thank you. Thank you for being a supporter and a Defender of Potential. Big Brothers Big Sisters is what it is because of you. We could not impact the lives of youth without each and everyone of you. This is true in normal years, and even more true this year. We all know that 2020 has been uniquely challenging, and we have had to modify the way we serve our Littles. Even though the world is in chaos, you’ve stepped up and made sure we can continue to operate and work toward our mission to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.
As we celebrate the holiday season and wrap up a strange year, I look back very proud of what we were able to accomplish with support from individuals like you. Across the region we’ve continued to make and support new matches, provide ongoing support to our Littles, provide additional support to their families, and to shift our site-based programs to brand new virtual mentoring opportunities. The number of matches made in 2020 have decreased, but I know that the quality of our matches has increased.
I look forward to 2021. I know we will continue to face challenges, but with your support, we’re prepared to face them head on. We will continue to work hard to change the lives of our Littles and give them the tools and hope they need for their brighter futures. Thank you for your support of Big Brothers Big Sisters, and I look forward to working with you moving forward. Together we are Defenders of Potential.
Wishing you a very safe and happy holiday season,
