Our $500 Sweepstakes Winner: Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Chicago!

bbbsBig Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) has done it again! For the second month in a row, the non-profit is one of our sweepstakes winners!

This time, the Chicago chapter has won $500. BBBS of Metropolitan Chicago is the city’s largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network. It matches adult volunteers (“Bigs”) with youth (“Littles”) for one-on-one mentoring. Sessions generally occur 2-4 times a month either on-site or in the local community. Over time, these sessions increase the odds that “Littles” will succeed in school, avoid violence and illegal activities, and build stronger relationships with their parents and peers.

BBBS Chicago is one of 14 Big Brother Big Sister chapters partnered with Op4G. Combined, these chapters have 2,521 Op4G members who have donated over $30,957! If you are interested in “helping every child reach their potential”, consider supporting BBBS through Op4G today!
