Our video series with Little Brother Matt and Big Brother Mark continues this week.
You might wonder what kinds of things you, as a Big Brother or Big Sister, would do with your Little when you spend one hour together each week.
Here Matt and Mark talk about some of the things they like to do together. Just watch how Matt's face lights up when they talk about their recent hike.
Do you run? Like to golf? Then we have the events for you this September.
Join us for either of our fundraisers and support BBBSLV!
We are in constant need of Big Brothers to mentor Little Brothers.
Won't you volunteer to be a positive influence on the life of a boy in our community?
Are you new to running and looking for a chipped 5k to run in this fall?
Then join us on Saturday, September 9 at Stabler Arena in Bethlehem for the Corner Store Country Run - Lehigh Valley, PA. Sign up online now.
(Volunteers are also needed for Friday 9/8 and race day to help us run the event. FYI.)
Thank you to Sally Handlon, host of the WDIY 88.1 FM program "Lehigh Valley Disclosure" for having #BBBSLV CEO Susan Bartels and Board Member Bruce Eames to the Southside Bethlehem studio yesterday to tape an interview for a segment to air on Thursday, August 17 from 6-7 p.m.
We appreciate the opportunity to talk about our nonprofit organization and the work it does in the community! Be sure to tune in and listen on that date. We will also share the link once the segment is posted to the WDIY site.
