Big Brothers Big Sisters is in need of volunteers to help out the with the annual Back to School Blitz. Volunteers will help kids from the mentoring program pick out clothes to make sure they're all set to start the new school year in style.
This year, there are 147 kids from Big Brothers Big Sister who be participating the Back to School Blitz. That's about 50 more than the event usually has. To make it happen, and to make sure each kid has a blast, about 15 more volunteers are needed for the Saturday morning event.
Big Brothers Big Sisters says that feeling comfortable in new clothes that are their style increases the children's self-esteem. This allows them to stop focusing on fitting in and place more focus on what really matters—learning and keeping their grades up.
