I am participating in Bowl for Kids Sake again this year to support Big Brothers Big Sisters. I originally got involved with this event because I thought it would be fun and they do good work. Since then I found out that they served 600+ kids in our community. They operate at 25% below the national average despite serving more kids than any other similar-sized community agency in the country. This one event makes up a good portion of their annual funding. The majority of their volunteers are JMU students that meet with their “littles” once a week. This organization is making a difference in our community and helping those most in need of help.
