A contribution to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Manitowoc County is truly an investment in our local community. Each gift goes directly into our program, matching a child with a positive adult role model. Children matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister for at least one year are less likely to begin using alcohol or drugs, less likely to be involved in acts of violence and less likely to skip school. They are more likely to perform better in school and more likely to get along better with family and friends.
Whether you give through a cash or in-kind donation or by volunteering your time, every gift to Big Brothers Big Sisters makes a BIG difference.
