Thank you to WBZCaresfor naming us a charity of the month!
PLEASE do not leave trash at Attended Donation Stations (PODs). Not only do we have 2 pay 4 disposal - which means less funding support 4 at-risk kids - but the unseemly piles are jeopardizing established community partnerships & the jobs of those who are employed at the PODs. Thank you!
**Please note: All Breakables & Sharp Items Must Be Securely Wrapped & Placed In Covered Boxes**
Thanks to you, we are Celebrating 20 Years of supporting mentoring agencies helping at-risk children!
If you're interested in becoming a Big or a Little, just visit Boston Bigs for more information!

- Big Sister Association of Greater Boston
- Big Brothers Big Sisters of Massachusetts Bay
- BBBS of Greater Attleboro
- BBBS of Greater Lowell
- BBBS Middlesex

- Old Colony Y BBBS
Did you know?
- Last year, we raised enough funds to match 348 "littles" with "bigs." Kids with mentors stay in school. Our community saves $12,500 per year for every child who stays in school.
- Over the course of the year, we have had ~95 clubhouse members from MA Clubhouse Coalition on our payroll. For every gainfully employed clubhouse member, the community saves $21,000.
- We also offer "second chance" employment after rehab or prison.
- Every fall, we donate coats and backpacks to school-aged children in underserved communities.
In short, for every dollar we spend, we return $1.34 to the community.
And we couldn't do it without you - Thank you!
