Charity Spotlight: Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Ozarks

Big-1

The percentages posted on the website of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Ozarks are impressive: 81 percent of Littles believe more is possible in life; 99 percent of Littles stay out of the juvenile justice system; and 90 percent of Littles have improved self-esteem.

Put another way – the organization is a great fit for the PGA Korn Ferry Tour’s Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper, which benefits Ozarks children’s charities.

“Our relationship with PCCC is essential to our programs,” said Ashley French, Executive Director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Ozarks. “The amount of funding we receive annually from the tournament’s proceeds impacts our mission greatly. PCCC enables us to empower our youth in our community and help them feel like they can achieve anything. That is an investment worth making.”

Its mission is clear: Create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.

For Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Ozarks, its website also offers ways to sponsor an event, volunteer at an event or attend an event. And they’re always coming up with creative ideas.

“Do you want to wash some cars, help us wrap holiday gifts, host a bake sale, start a clothing drive, or put on a frog race (we’ve never done this, but we’d love to give it a try)?” the website says.
