On Sunday, October 30th, 2016 Big Brothers Big Sisters will be holding the first annual “Rake-A-Thon.” In an effort to fund raise for the agency, staff, BBBS volunteers alongside community volunteers will be raking and bagging leaves for Sault Ste. Marie residents. The agency is asking that participating households pay $3.00 / bag of leaves picked up.
This unique event is perfect for citizens who are unable to rake their own lawns, for those who have a busy schedule or for anyone who wants to donate to a local non-profit organization that provides the opportunity for youth mentorship.
Biodegradable leaf bags have been generously donated by Lowe’s and Lyon’s Timber Mart, allowing for 100% of the proceeds raised to remain local and benefit participants of the diverse programs Big Brothers Big Sisters of Sault Ste. Marie offers our youth.
