Some of the best mentoring moments happen when you’re doing the simplest things — like playing a game. All in-school and teen mentors are provided with access to mentoring boxes filled with games, puzzles, and craft supplies. Since Big Brothers Big Sisters is in schools right across PEI, there are a lot of games! By donating your new or gently used game, you provide mentor and a Little the chance to make a connection, while doing something they both enjoy. This Giving Season, your gift could ignite the power and potential of Island Youth.
The simplest acts create the biggest impact. Donate a game and help empower a child to succeed. Can’t make it to the event or don’t want to wait to make a donation?
