Midwest Chapter Supports Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Chicago

The Midwest Chapter supported Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Chicago with a $3,500 donation, which helped to fund the organization’s graduation ceremony on July 16, 2015. The donation was part of the chapter’s 2015 Chapter Charity outreach in conjunction with PLUS Foundation.

About the Charity: Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Chicago provides support for children age 6 through 18 who live in single parent homes, live in poverty or are dealing with parental incarceration. The program provides monitored matches with adult volunteer mentors, encouraging positive relationships while instilling values, principals and producing childhood successes which carry into adulthood. IMG_4246

HOPE Atlanta – Southeast Chapter Charity 2015

The PLUS Southeast Chapter is pleased to support HOPE Atlanta, the recipient of the chapter’s 2015 Chapter Charity Grant.

Chapter leaders delivered a grant check for $2,500 to the organization, which will use the money to support their 6,000 homeless or at-risk clients. Of every dollar given to HOPE Atlanta, 94 cents goes toward its mission; so of the $2,500 grant, approximately $2,350 will go toward the work HOPE does this year.
