Whole Foods Event Raises Funds for BBBS ProgramMarch 29, 2016, 12:00 PM HST · Updated March 29, 9:50 AM 0 Comments
Whole Foods Market Maui hosted a community support day for Big Brothers Big Sisters on Wednesday, March 23.
Five percent of the day’s sales—a total of $4,295—was donated to BBBS to assist ongoing efforts to provide Maui youth with positive role models.
BBBS matches youth in one-to-one friendships with mentors to encourage, model and support good decisions and behaviors. Youth who have a positive adult influence in their lives are better able to reach their fullest potential.
Statewide, the BBBS mentoring programs help Hawai‘i’s children and teens grow socially, emotionally, and academically by providing the tools to achieve success in life and hope for a brighter future.
Volunteers and staff from BBBS were on-hand to thank customers with free T-shirts and provide information on the program.
