About Our Organization
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Siouxland creates and supports one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.
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!

A donation through the Siouxland Big Give to support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Siouxland (BBBS) will help us provide super fun, activities for hundreds of kids in our program. Your generous donation will help fund awesome community-based activities like an evening at the Sioux City Art Center where our Littles can get their creative juices flowing with a cool project. Or other fun match activities like a day of sledding at Cone Park, Movie Night or a trip to a water park. The monthly match activities the BBBS staff plan for Bigs and Littles in our program help foster positive, healthy relationships and allow our kids to have a blast!
