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?

Making a BIG Difference!



We have made a few changes to the Big Bucks 50/50 draw to allow our volunteers more time to process the coins and to improve efficiency. Registration forms will now be available ONLY at the Big Brothers – Big Sisters office – 26 Logan Street. This will allow us to manage sales in a more efficient manner. Also: All Big Buck boxes are now picked up on Mondays by 2 pm. We start in Stewiacke around 8:30 am, work our way to MacQuarrie's in Brookfield by 9 am, then onto Double "C", Petro Can, Truro Mall. We usually hit Tatamagouche around 10:30 am with ALL boxes picked up by 1:30 ish. Of course routes may change due to road conditions, weather etc so you should play by Sunday to be sure.

The final place to play is at the BBBS office BY 4:15 on Mondays (except holiday Mondays when we are closed)

Check the date on the front of the box.
Drop by or call us at 895-4562…and thanks so much to everyone for playing and supporting local.
