Big Brothers Big Sisters wishes to thank the incredible Taggart Parkes Foundation who provided our families with gift cards this holiday season to shop for much needed winter clothing.

We have heard back from a number of families expressing their deep gratitude for this assistance to stay warm this winter!

“I am so happy and was able to get some really good stuff that I needed like some new shoes, really warm pants and a neck warmer. This was really nice of you guys and I really appreciate it. Thank so much I am so grateful for all of your kindness.” – Sarah, 15

“I would like to personally thank you from the bottom of my heart for this beautiful gift that we can use towards my son’s  winter coat and boots.  It’s difficult as a single mother to support a family on one income but COVID 19 has definitely made things much worse this year with increased costs of living and less income.   Thanks again.”  – Jennifer

I wanted to thank you and BBBSO for the incredible generosity of the Gift Certificates. WOW. We really appreciate the thoughtfulness, and my children were able to get some warm clothing for the Winter. I am not working at the moment, and the timing couldn’t be better.  You mentioned a generous donor provided them, and I am hoping you can relay my gratitude to the donor. We are very grateful. I wish you a wonderful Holiday Season.” – Deb
