BP has recently awarded Sublette County’s Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) branch a $1,500 grant to help support the mentoring program in Pinedale, Marbleton, and Big Piney.
"We make sure that all of our volunteers and children are professionally supported to ensure a positive impact. This award will be an incredible help in making sure that our children will grow to reach their full potential. BP has shown their commitment to our young peoples’ future," said Susan Anderson, the Outreach Coordinator for BBBS.
The organization serves over 50 children in Sublette County by matching them with adult mentors that spend time with them on a consistent basis forming an enduring relationship. All volunteers are carefully screened for safety purposes and supported throughout the length of the match help ensure a significant result. BP’s grant will be used to pay for these operation costs.
