Union Pacific Railroad has made a generous donation of $3500 to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Clinton. Accepting the check is Peggy Sellnau, Executive Director, Larissa Van Zuiden, Program Specialist, and Board of Directors members, Carena French, Michele Meade, Julie Eggers, Natalie Newcomb, and Sara Misiewicz.
We are happy to receive this donation for our program so we can continue to provide very important mentoring services to the children in our community. Children who have mentors are more likely to be successful in school, avoid risky behaviors, and have higher self-esteem. Children involved in a mentoring program are more likely to graduate from high school on time and go on to college.
A BIG thank you to the Fulton Community Fund & Great River Bend Foundation for awarding BBBS of Clinton with a $500 grant each! These funds will be used towards growing our school-based program within the Fulton/River Bend schools for the 2016-2017 academic year!
We are now part of the Prairie Farms Our Caps Your Cause program and we need your support. For every cap entered, we receive 5 cents to go towards our mentoring programs.
On Prairie Farms white or flavored milk in gallon or half gallon sizes, there are stickers located on the caps. Reveal a unique, redeemable code by peeling of the Prairie Farms sticker and enter it at http://www.prairiefarms.com/our-caps-your-cause.aspx. When prompted with the choice of which organization to give to, please choose Big Brothers Big Sisters of Clinton.
