Each year half a million people across America come together to have fun and raise money to support Big Brothers Big Sisters as we change how children grow up! Bowl For Kids’ Sake is the perfect way for individuals to make an impact on our community- it only takes a little bit of effort to raise the money that is vital to our program’s success.

Where does the money go?

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Delaware depends on background checks on volunteers to ensure child safety, and provides ongoing training and support for children, families and volunteers to build and sustain long-lasting relationships that changes the lives of young people for the better, forever.  Your role in this effort helps raise community awareness of the challenges faced by local children and helps us gain the financial support needed to sustain our program and reach more youth.
