A MESSAGE FROM OUR CAMPAIGN LEADERSHIP
This strategic move from our very modest office on Landis Avenue in Vineland to a more centralized and modern office building with upgraded technology in Carll’s Corner will help prepare us for many more years of serving the youth of our community. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cumberland & Salem Counties reminds me of one of Aesop’s fables, The Tortoise and the Hare, consistently and persistently, with quality and determination, taking the necessary steps on the path to successfully mentor the children in need who live within our community. This organization has modeled the kind of behavior that we want to instill in our children.
Paul Perino, Jr.
We never dreamed of this type of success when we first began at our family’s kitchen table. BBBS’s unique one-to-one mentoring program has a proven track record for positive impact, and it’s the wisest investment you can make on behalf of our youth!

I don’t think there is any doubt that Big Brothers Big Sisters has a positive impact on the Littles, but I was not expecting the impact it has also had on me as a Big. It has been truly inspiring watching my Little grow, try new things and discover new interests. It’s encouraged me to put that same energy into my life and seek out new experiences. Our time together has been such a source of joy in my life and I am so proud of the young man he has become.
