Cause Spotlight: Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Midlands

At Proseeds, we hope the funds generated from the consumer’s loyalty to our participating businesses can make a major difference to those in our community who need it most. Allie Verch, Donor Stewardship Manager of Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) of the Midlands, confirms they’re using their donations to do just that.

“We focus on vulnerable populations of children like those living in low-income single-parent households or in foster care. By focusing on these children, Big Brothers Big Sisters has the greatest impact on our community.”

BBBS of the Midlands is a community-based mentoring organization that matches children in the Omaha/Council Bluffs metro and surrounding areas of eastern Nebraska and western Iowa with caring adult mentors. The funds raised from Proseeds goes directly to support hundreds of mentoring friendships and recruiting more volunteer mentors to match with Littles on their wait list.

In addition to financial help, mentors are always needed around BBBS. “We have ongoing need for volunteer mentors,” Verch says. “Being a Big is easy, fun and rewarding! It’s a small commitment for a BIG impact!”
