Welcome to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Hampden County, the area’s leader in one-to-one mentoring for more than 40 years. Our volunteers (we call them “Bigs”) serve hundreds of children from Hampden County and the towns of South Hadley and Granby. Our Bigs come from all walks of life. And what do they get out of the experience? They get to have fun and be a kid again!
Research shows that “Littles” (our name for the children in our program) are:
- 46% less likely than their peers to start using illegal drugs
- 27% less likely to start drinking
- 52% less likely to skip school
- 37% less likely to skip a class
This Just In!
The annual BBBSHC Match Holiday Party, which took place on December 5th, was an absolute blast! Thank you to our enduring sponsor, Lenox Tools, who hosts the party year after year and also generously provides the food! Thank you to the matches who came out to ring in the holiday season with us and got to enjoy a tour through Bright Nights thanks to Spirit of Springfield and Peter Pan Bus Company!
Thank you to our amazing, generous sponsors. for making this event possible!
Happy Holidays from the staff of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Hampden County!
