Raised by 162 people in 21 months
Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Central West Virginia needs your help! BBBS is a long-established mentoring programs that matches vulnerable children and adolescents with caring adult role models. BBBS of South Central WV recently lost some major donors after it was announced that the organization had accepted a training grant to help its staff and volunteers work more effectively with LGBTQ youth. This loss of funding may cause BBBS to suspend programming.

Please donate to help BBBS maintain their "Bigs" and "Littles" and to demonstrate support for all kids, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
