How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
Pick.Click.Give. donations cover a number of expenses associated with matching children with Big Brothers and Big Sisters, including staff time to recruit volunteers, enroll children and youth, provide training to volunteers, conduct screening and background checks, and provide the professional match support to families and volunteers that results in strong, healthy and impactful relationships that provide positive educational and social outcomes for kids.
A former Little Brother who had moved to Alaska with a relative after suffering abuse, only to end up in the foster care system, had this to say about his relationship with his Big Brother: Dave has helped me through so much in my life. I would see Dave throughout everything I was going through. He never left me like everyone else did. He was always there for me. Dave has had a real impact on my life. Without him I don't think I would be the man I am today. Now a productive and contributing citizen, Billy is still friends with Dave after 14 years.
