Big Brothers Big Sisters wants you! | Events
If you want to enjoy a fun outing this weekend, and help a local child at the same time, there's no better event than the Big Brothers Big Sisters "Back to School Blitz."
The Blitz provides $100 gift card to 91 "Littles" in the program to buy back-to-school-clothes at Fred Meyer. All you have to do is tag along, help your child pick out their clothes, and have some laughs with your new friend. In addition to the clothes, each child receives a backpack full of school supplies.
I've volunteered at this event in the past, and I promise you, it's a fun, rewarding experience for everyone. It all starts at 8:30 a.m. this Saturday at the Fred Meyer on 4th Ave and Thor. If you'd like to take part in the Blitz, or you'd like more info about the BBBS mentoring program, check out their website or call 509-328-8310.
