By teaming up with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Erie County (BBBSEC) and WGR-550 as a member of the 550 Club, you can help change a child’s life. It’s simple. Donate $5.50 a month for 12 months (or a one-time gift of $66.00) to help us match children waiting for a Big Brother or Big Sister. Once matched, these children will participate with their Big Brother or Big Sister in special activities like summer picnics, trips to local attractions and our Hasek’s Heroes Big & Little Skating program.

Little Brother Shawn shared, “I have three sisters and my mom. I wanted to get out of the house and do guy things. My Big Brother Chris is cool and fun. I can talk to him about anything and whatever is in my head, I can get out of my head.”

In addition to gaining a friend, children involved with Big Brothers Big Sisters are less likely to become involved in risky behaviors, show improvement in self-confidence, and have a more positive attitude toward school. Also, 97% of the Littles involved in BBBSEC were promoted to the next grade level at the end of the 2011 academic year. That’s not only a win-win for these children but for the well-being of our entire community! And all of this will be possible for less than the cost of one lunch out or a bucket of balls at the driving range.

Why wait? Join our winning team and become a member of the 550 Club. You can get started right now by donating securely online $5.50 a month for 12 months or making a one-time gift of $66.00. Help a child explore new worlds and reach their full potential with a Big Brother or Big Sister today!
