Holiday Trees are Going Up
Many thanks to our friends at the following Snohomish County YMCA branches, who host Giving Trees each year for us - Everett, Marysville, Mill Creek, Monroe, and Mukilteo.
Between November 25th and December 20th, you can help put a smile on the face of local kids, simply by visiting one of these local YMCA branches, removing a gift tag from the tree, purchasing a gift card, and dropping it back off in the Giving Tree box or in our office in Everett. Receiving these gifts each year at our holiday skate party is truly special for our Little Brothers and Little Sisters. Thank you for your support!
Beyond School Walls is Back for its 7th Year!
Beyond School Walls is a career-focused mentoring program that allows children access to adult mentors. This program is part of a national partnership between Comcast and Big Brothers Big Sisters, and we are fortunate to be one of 15 programs nationwide.
Starting on November 29th, students from Woodside Elementary will be meeting one-on-one with Comcast mentors and taking part in structured group activities that center around career development, team building, and interpersonal skill building.
Thank you to the employees at Comcast who have volunteered to be mentors this year. We look forward to a very fun and engaging year! For more information on our Beyond School Walls program, please contact Suzanne Leavitt, Program Supervisor at firstname.lastname@example.org.

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. This November 28th, join the movement and give - whether it’s some of your time, a donation, gift or the power of your voice in your local community.
It’s a simple idea. Whether you come together with your family, your community, your company or your organization, you can support Big Brothers Big Sisters' vision that all children achieve success in life, by making a tax deductible donation here. Together, we can change the lives of children for the better, forever. Thank you!
