Remember Big Brothers Big Sisters of Butte this season
The Holiday Season is a special time filled with friends, family and the spirit of giving. Particularly time with family. That is why this is one of the most important times of the year to remember those whose immediate families have been redirected to a place where their loved ones are simply unaccessible. Especially if that person is a child.
Since 1966, what is now Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Butte has been very active in Southwest Montana. Their mission is to provide and support one-on-one mentoring relationships between their "bigs" and their "littles" which have been instrumental in putting our youth on the right track to productive early adulthood. Evaluations of their work has shown that upon entering the program, participants are less likely to use drugs and alcohol or to become pregnant and more likely to graduate high school. And their work is certainly needed in Butte.
