Congratulations to Nisan & Anjali on being our 2015 Match Of The Year!

“It is our honor and privilege to recognize the significance of Nisan and Anjali as the Sixth Annual Big Brothers Big Sistersʼ Match of the Year. All of our volunteers and families invest so much that it was difficult to select one match in particular. However, Nisan and Anjali’s relationship over the years has been marked by consistency and significant growth. We celebrate them and the other mentors in our program.”

Donate Your CRT Award to BBBS

If you bought a Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) television or computer screen between 1995 and 2007 you are owed money from a lawsuit settlement. The lawsuit was due to the fact that between those years most of the manufacturers of those products were meeting behind closed doors, price fixing and overcharging the American public hundreds of millions of dollars. This is a way to make it right. The only manufacturer who did not take part was Sony, so no Sony products are covered by this settlement.

We are asking you to take 3 minutes of your time to fill out our short form. Don’t delay! Claim period ends December 31, 2015.
