Annual Christmas Party – Sunday, December 15, 2019

RSVP by October 31, 2019

It’s that time of year again!  Planning is in full swing for our annual Big Brothers Big Sisters Christmas Party.  As our program continues to grow, our parties get more crowded with each passing year, in order to accommodate this growth, we are continuing with changes we made four years ago.

While we still welcome Bigs, Littles and the parents and guardians of Littles, we can no longer include any extended family members, friends or siblings that are not already involved in the program.  If you have any questions or concerns regarding these changes, please feel free to call our office at 330-545-0002.

The 2019 Christmas party will be held Sunday, December 15th from 1:00 to 4:00pm at Girard High School located at 1244 Shannon Rd. in Girard.  Please enter through the doors on the left side of the building.  A catered meal will be provided in the cafeteria.

IMPORTANT:  Please call our office at 330-545-0002 or email us at by Thursday, October 31, 2019 to sign up for the party and provide us with your child’s Christmas wish list along with his or her age, clothing size, favorite color and favorite sports team.  All children attending the party will receive a gift from Santa so it is very important that you RSVP by October 31, 2019.

If you would like to nominate any Big Brother or Big Sister for “Big of the Year” award, please send us a letter or email stating why that person should be nominated.  Nominations are due by  Friday, November 15, 2019.

Also, no gifts will be distributed until the end of the Christmas party, so if you need to leave early, please call our office to make other arrangements for picking up the gifts.

We look forward to seeing you at this very special holiday event!   Don’t forget to RSVP with your children’s wish lists by Thursday, October 31,  2019.
