For more than 40 years, BBBSU has matched Bigs and Littles to create everlasting bonds. These matches help ignite the potential of Utah’s youth. Volunteering your time is one of the first types of donations that we want to praise. Through your generous donations in Utah, our organization, and most importantly our Littles, have been able to function efficiently. We need all hands from our local communities to
Through volunteering is one of the most impactful ways to protect our youth’s potential, clothing donations in Utah have made a significant impact as well. In 2019, the donations in Utah which BBBSU received had monumental impacts.
With 158 locations to make donations in Utah and 21 partners supported via clothing drives, donations are urgent to our mission. Together, we as a community were able to divert 3,375,403 pounds of cloth waste from Utah landfills last year. Apart from providing our Littles with needed items, your donations have helped us clean up the environment.
Of course, we can’t disregard financial donations. Through your generosity to help protect our youth’s potential, we have been able to keep our mission going strong. Your financial donations help us employ qualified and dedicated staff to oversee the smooth operation of our organization. These donations also allow us to put together events that help us spread our message, as well as provide our Bigs and Littles with a chance to participate in engaging and entertaining community activities. For example, this last year we were able to put together our BBBSU Picnic, an activity where our Bigs and Littles got to enjoy food, socializing, and activities. These events keep our community bond going strong, and we can’t achieve our mission without your help.
The impact that donations have had on our community in 2019 is of tremendous importance, and we can’t wait to see how you’ll help defend our youth’s potential in 2020.
