  • Gwen Mitchell: A Legacy of Love
  • While we work to find the perfect match for our Littles, sometimes there are other, just as valuable, ways that volunteers can have incredible impact on our Bay Area kids. Gwen Mitchell has been a volunteer with Big Brothers Big Sisters for about four decades. Her story is about perseverance, connection and gratitude. We celebrate Gwen’s involvement with our organization and want to inspire others to follow in her footsteps.
  • Bigger Together: How One Person Can Impact Many Bay Area Children’s Lives
  • You might have seen her at a recent (or long past) Bowl For Kids Sake. A defining presence in our Big Brothers Big Sisters community, Glendora Pitre demonstrates how our legacy depends on the people that consistently and whole heartedly live the mission: providing children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported 1-to-1 relationships that change their lives for the better, forever. Glendora’s story exemplifies the powerful ways that one person can make difference in the lives of so many.
