Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ketchikan finds caring adult mentors for children who could benefit from the attention of a committed, positive adult. According to BBBS Program Manager Gretchen Klein, last year, BBBS served 46 "Littles" in Ketchikan by matching them in one-to-one relationships with "Bigs". The agency's goal is to serve 150 Ketchikan youth each year by 2010.
"We are extremely grateful to the founding members of our Little Moments Big Magic Society and everyone else who attended our luncheon," said Gretchen Klein. "These folks really show how committed Ketchikan is to the welfare of our children."
"My wife Kimberly and I are honored to help found this giving society," said Rob Skinner of Lewis Motors, Society Founding Member and BBBS Board Member. "We hope our gift encourages other citizens to support this worthwhile organization."
BBBS would like to thank the following members of the Little Moments Big Magic Society:
