Brighten the year for area children by donating holiday gifts to support mentoring relationships of Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) of Metro Milwaukee.
Holiday giving opportunities for individuals and groups are available.
Adopt-a-Match: Enrich the weekly experiences of a child and volunteer mentor matched through BBBS of Metro Milwaukee. Donors will receive the name of a Big Brothers Big Sisters match and a “wish list” of gift ideas that will support the match’s shared time together. Requested gifts include year-long memberships and/or gift cards to cultural and entertainment destinations. Examples include museum memberships, restaurant gift cards, movie passes, professional or collegiate sports tickets and theater tickets. Other gift ideas include books, art supplies and games that can be used by “Bigs” and “Littles” during the course of their regular get-togethers.
Adopt-a-School: Help equip one of the eight BBBS of Metro Milwaukee school locations in Milwaukee and Waukesha. These locations are in need of educational materials, magazine subscriptions, games and craft supplies. These supplies will be used by Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring matches during their weekly time together. Donors will receive the name and description of a mentoring site and a supplies wish list. Adopt-a-School gifts offer a perfect giving opportunity for companies and groups.
To participate, call Elsa Knysak-Wolfe, BBBS of Metro Milwaukee, 414-2
