... for matching grant
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southeast Alaska would like to thank the Leighty Foundation for their $250 matching grant for the BBBS School Mentoring Program. Thanks to this grant, we were able to raise an additional $405 to bring Big Brothers and Big Sisters into Juneau's schools. This school year, Big Brothers Big Sisters matched a record 85 volunteers with Juneau School District students, who enjoy reading, having lunch, and playing games together. We couldn't have had such success without community support, like that shown by the Leighty Foundation.
