To the editor,
On behalf of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Pictou County I would like to send out a BIG thank you to everyone who participated in Bowl for Kids Sake this year.
Although we were down significantly and did not reach our goal of $73,000 we are grateful for the support for our communityâ€™s children. Thank you to all who pledged, bowled, donated prizes, sponsored the event and lanes as well as the many volunteers who work tirelessly to ensure the event runs smoothly. We could not have done it without you.
Moving forward, we know times are difficult presently for small business, large business, non-profits and individuals. We are working hard at being fiscally responsible yet at the same time providing the same service with less resources. Thank you for believing in our mentoring programs and our children.
We know the next few years are going to be tough financially for all non-profits, but Pictou County is a wonderfully supportive community. I think I can speak on behalf of all non-profits to say we are all grateful for any support extended our way and as a community we will all continue to provide services for our citizens that will make Pictou County a much better place to live.
Executive Director, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Pictou County
