Week 16 – Bowl for Kids Sake

 

This week, BCS sponsored Bowl for Kids Sake, a fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters of East Tennessee.  The BBBS program matches local at-risk youth with adults who share their interests.  This program is proven to increase school attendance, decrease drug use, and decrease violence.  There are currently 676 children in our region in this program with an adult mentor, and 113 are waiting for mentors.  It costs $1000 to train a new volunteer.
