This week we sent out our Spring 2013 Newsletter. In it you will find many of our annual outcomes, client successes, memories of past supporters, and event highlights. Sharing this information with you allows us to look back at our successes and ask ourselves what is the common thread?
The common thread throughout the entire newsletter is the overwhelming support that you have shown us.
Because of your support, 96% of children with a Big Brother or Big Sister avoided alcohol, drugs, and delinquent behavior. Because of your support, a ten year old girl named Marie, who has seen more suffering and loss than most of us in a lifetime, experienced the programs offered by D.A. Blodgett – St. John’s. Now she is learning to accept the love offered to her. Because of supporters like the late Norm Ginebaugh, children on our residential campus met Santa every year, and had thousands of food and goods donated over the course of 14 years. Because of your support, Bowl for Kids’ Sake was able to raise $50,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters and our special 125th Anniversary Guild Gala raised a record breaking $300,000.
Please take a moment to learn about our outcomes, Marie, Norm, and our record breaking events by reading our Spring 2013 Newsletter here.
Thank you for all that you do to help the children and families we serve.
