Volunteer to Start Something
What if every child finished high school, went to college or university, got a job and gave back to our community? Wouldn't that be something?

 smile cookie 2014


For the entire week starting September 15th through September 21st, Tim Hortons held their Smile Cookie Campaign.

 All four Tim Hortons restaurants throughout Bradford sold the special Chocolate Chunk cookie with a Smile on it for $1.00 plus tax.

An additional reason to smile is that ALL proceeds were donated to Big Brothers Big Sisters of York/Bradford West Gwillimbury.

Thanks to all who took the time to stop by a Tim Hortons in Bradford and pick up a few “Smile” cookies to take along……..so many will benefit…..so many “smiles”.

We thank the Ontario Trillium Foundation for awarding Big Brothers Big Sisters of York grant monies that will be alloated over the next three (3) years.  These funds will enable us to hire a full time caseworker to serve the South Asian Community and purchase laptop computers for the caseworker staff,  that will allow them to do presentations and home visits.



Thank You!

We thank the Region of York for their support of our Valuing Diversity - Inclusive Mentoring project.  Funding through this project helps to fund a range of programming and activities including: In-School mentoring, The Club, and Go Girls! Healthy Bodies Healthy Mind.  These programs engage both teen and senior mentors, while reaching children and youth from diverse cultural backgrounds reflective of our region.

Witnessing the transformation of a child into a confident young person is a remarkable thing.
