Big Brothers, Big Sisters, big impact

06/18/14

We are all connected. Sometimes in very obvious ways. And sometimes in ways that aren’t so apparent at first.

For instance, Pinnacle Bank has a long-standing relationship with Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Midlands. It includes many bank employees who are “Bigs.” It’s easy to see how they make a positive impact in our community by mentoring a child in need.

But as you dig deeper, you find out even more ways in which we are related. One of our employees is a past president of BBBS’ board of directors. Another has a son who works there. And on and on.

Big Brothers Big Sisters is one of those organizations whose reach far exceeds its size. By matching mentors with at-risk youth, it provides a stabilizing influence on our whole community. That mission inspired us to include one of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Midlands’ biggest fundraisers, Bowling For Kids Sake, in our Community Matters Series.

But the best way to discover the importance of Big Brothers Big Sisters, is to get involved. Go to their website at bbbsomaha.org . Sign up to volunteer.
