Being a Big Brother or Big Sister is absolutely free, other then providing your enthusiasm and the gift of sharing some free time with a child-in-need. BBBSLR is fortunate to be linked to several agencies and donors who provide free tickets and passes to cultural activities, special events, concerts, and sporting events – including the Pirates, Penguins and Steelers. BBBSLR staff can also help you learn more about great free and low-cost activities in your own local communities.
In addition to the activities Bigs and Littles participate in together, BBBSLR holds special large-scale gatherings each year, including a summer picnic at Idlewild Park and a holiday party at Hillview Bowling Lanes.
Those individuals who are not in a position to make the time commitment necessary to be a Big Brother or a Big Sister can still help the agency by serving on committees and attending special events.
With a wide variety of happenings, there’s something that everyone can participate in and enjoy - take a look for yourself at the links to the left!
