There is no more important investment we can make than in helping our nation's children realize and share their full potential
Ways to donate
Thank you so much to Canadian Western Bank for their donation of $5,235.41 from their Greater Interest GIC initiative! CWB has always been a great supporter of our agency at the local level and with BBBS across Canada. Their donations have helped us to serve over 400 children through our programs in 2016, and we hope to serve even more in 2017! Growing our programs would not be possible without the generosity of Canadian Western Bank and local donors like them, so thank you for making our programs the best they can be.
At the end of 2016, the Langley Times profiled one of the Little Sisters on our waitlist and her mother to give the Langley community an idea of our need for volunteer mentors and how much they mean to the Littles they are matched with. To read the article, click here. Richmond News also wrote an article to make an appeal for Big Brothers in Richmond. However, we have just as many Little Brothers on our waitlist as Little Sisters, so we too are looking for Big Brothers just as much as we're looking for Big Sisters to volunteer with us. If you or someone you know have ever thought about becoming a volunteer mentor with our agency, contact us for more information on how to get the intake process started. We are always looking for volunteers and want to live up to our vision that "Every child in the Langleys who needs a mentor, has a mentor".
In the fall of 2016, our longstanding volunteer (40 years and counting!), Rob Ross, received the Award of Distinction at the annual Community Safety and Crime Prevention Awards. The Award of Distinction is a premier award and recognized Rob for his lifetime commitment to community safety and crime prevention by providing mentorship, life skills, and individual support to at-risk youth. We are honoured to have Rob in our agency and continue to witness the amazing impact that he has on not only his Little Brothers, but all of his peers involved in our agency. You can read Rob's acceptance speech by clicking here and get more information about his award by clicking here. Congratulations to Rob on being recognized for his outstanding service as a part of our agency!
Over the last few years, Prospera Credit Union in Langley has invited us to their location to help them celebrate Credit Union Day and setup a presentation table so we can reach out to their members and tell them about our mentoring programs and presence in the community. We were also presented with a $250 donation from Prospera to help support our agency. Prospera continually helps us with different initiatives throughout the year, including their annual Cinema Under The Stars where proceeds from the event go to us. Thank you so much to Prospera for your continued support and making us feel like part of the Prospera team!
Did you know that we have a clothing and household goods donation bin at Mastermind Toys in Langley? There is one small bin that is available 24/7 for you to drop off any items to us that you no longer use. Your donations help to fund our agency's programs, so all of your
donations are greatly appreciated!
Please note that donation of furniture or large
appliances is not accepted at this location. To arrange for pickup from
your home, please contact Renew Crew at 604-521-4393.
Witnessing the transformation of a child into a confident young person is a remarkable thing.
