Holiday Family Assistance Programs

‘Tis the Season

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southeast Michigan is grateful for the opportunity to offer two Holiday Family Assistance Programs for our Littles and their families this Holiday Season!.

The Adopt-A-Family program has brightened the holidays for thousands of local families for over twenty years. Last year, we were able to adopt 85 families.  In addition, the generosity of our community just kept flowing with 75 helping baskets, 20 donors that brought in item donations like coats, blankets and toys, and $2,000 in donated gift cards, allowing us to help many more families than initially applied for assistance. Our goal this year is to provide holiday gifts for a minimum of 75 Littles and their families. If you are interested in supporting the program, please click here.

We are also pleased to partner with Volunteers of America Michigan in support of our youth and families. Heart of the Holidays is a new initiative created by Volunteers of America Michigan (VOAMI). This holiday assistance program will help BBBSSEM’s youth by providing toys and clothing. Through their partnership with BBBSSEM and other Michigan social service agencies, VOAMI’s Heart of the Holidays program will be able to focus on serving more children than in the past. Through this collaboration, BBBSSEM and VOAMI have a goal of serving a minimum of 200 youth and their families. If you are interested in supporting this program, please click here.
