Big Brothers Big Sisters

Our Christmas party was on Sunday 7 December, and we had a marvelous time! Balloons, face painting, fresh cookies, Santa, a real band (of WIU music professors), a uniformed police officer, gifts for every child. It could not have been any better!

30 WIU athletes did all of the work, and we very much appreciate their unwavering support of the BBBS program.

Karissa Kouchis, WIU student and softball player, took photos for us. BIG thanks! Have a look:

Board member Lauren Suprenant dazzled with her balloon-twisting skills, the Lamoine Valley Brass Quintet serenaded us with beautiful Christmas music, and Charlene Kenney donated 50 stuffed animals as Christmas gifts for the for the Littles.

AND we made exactly 100 “anonymous” Christmas cards for the nice people at Lafayette Square. BBBS is very proud of everyone who participated in our annual gift to the Macomb community!

Many thanks to Woodforest National Bank for their extremely generous donation to fund our winter soiree!

WE NEED TO SAY A HUGE THANK-YOU TO LYDIA SMITH, WIU STUDENT AND TRACK STAR, FOR FACILITATING AND COORDINATING EVERYTHING.

BBBS Macomb wishes you and yours the happiest of holidays, and only the best in 2015!
