Your donations help us make and sustain matches between Bigs and Littles - and instanlty make you a part of our family. 



Current Project: Match Activities



Our amazing team at BBBS plans an outing at least once a month where our Bigs + Littles (matches) can take part in a fun activity with not only their Big, but other Bigs + Littles, too. These activities help foster positive, healthy relationships and allow our kids to have tons of fun! It also provides an opportunity every month for the Bigs to get together with their Littles and not have to plan their time together or pay. 

Your generous donation will help fund awesome community-based activities. Some of the bigger match activities we had over the past year year included hosting a Halloween Festival, ice skating and tubing at Cone Park, jumping around at Drop Zone, our Earth Day Kelly Park Clean Up, and tailgating before an Explorers game. With your donation, we will be able to continue to plan match activites at least once a month that allow our Littles to have fun and have experiences they otherwise wouldn't have.

Please Give Big to BBBS on October 4th! Thank you for your time and consideration!

  • Virtual Match Activities


    Project Details

    We are going virtual! 2020 has been a year of changes for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Siouxland, but we are not going to give up on our kiddos. Due to Covid-19, our matches have not been able to participate in our monthly match activities since February. What are match activities you ask? Our amazing team at BBBS plans an outing once a month where our Bigs + Littles (matches) can take part in a fun activity with not only their Big, but other Bigs + Littles, too. These activities help foster positive, healthy relationships and allow our kids to have tons of fun! Since we aren't able to faciliate a match activity safely, we have decided we will take our activities virtual. Your generous donations will help fund these virtual activities so we can keep our kids engaged and connected through this pandemic together. No gift is too small! We appreciate your support and consideration. Thank you!
