Consider giving to Big Brothers/Big Sisters

As another year draws to a close and you begin looking at projected charitable contributions for 2012, please consider adding Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Blount County to your annual tax-deductible charitable giving program – if you are not already supporting this program.

Big Brothers/Big Sisters provides a valuable service to our schools by matching younger students with older students who serve as mentors through scheduled meetings during the school year. These older student also gain valuable experience and learn a great deal while mentoring younger students. Donations to Big Brothers/Big Sisters help cover the costs associated with interviewing, matching, monitoring, and supporting our “Bigs” and “Littles.”

If you have any questions about how you and your business can be part of “Making Something Happen” with Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Blount County, please feel free to call me at 625-4102 or email county director Judy Wilemon at Thank you, and have a blessed holiday season!
