of York County
BBBS has been in Charlotte for some time, and they've done great work. Unfortunately, they haven't been very active in York County yet, largely for logistical reasons. They're working on it, but doing it right means taking the time needed to get all the pieces in place.
Illumine is hoping, should those pieces fall a certain way, to become the host site for Big Brothers, Big Sisters as they move into York County. This means that Bigs would meet their Littles at the Center and they would be able to use the facility as a Safe Place if necessary.
For now, we're excited to be hosting a book drive to support BBBS. These books will be used by the program for meetings, both to entertain kids while parents meet and to give Bigs & Littles something to talk about. If you're interested in helping in a specific way with the book drive, check out this document and contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved!
