Cornwall Ontario– Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cornwall and District and Leon’s Furniture held a car wash on Saturday, August 10th to raise money in support of BBBS seven free mentoring programs.
The group set a goal of washing 40 cars in 4 hours and achieved that goal, raising over $400 for the BBBS programs that benefit local children and youth.
“Big Brothers Big Sisters wanted to wash 40 cars in honour of 40 years of mentoring and we did it! 40 cars in 4 hours and raised 404 dollars. I think 4 is my lucky number!” said BBBS Executive Director Amanda Brisson.
Big Brothers Big Sisters staff, volunteers, Bigs, Littles and board members were at the Marleau Ave. location washing vehicles from 11am until 3pm.
Big Brothers Big Sisters One-on-One Mentoring program matches area children and youth with a volunteer mentor, or a ‘Big’. For more information on becoming a volunteer or hosting a fundraising event for BBBS, please call Amanda at 613-933-8035 or email [email protected].
