Best Buy Foundation benefits Big Brothers

The Best Buy Foundation announced on Monday a donation of $7,500 to assist Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Central Blue Ridge in its efforts to match area kids with positive adult mentors.

“We are absolutely delighted to be receiving this generous donation from our friends at Best Buy,” said Dave Norris, the executive director of the local Big Brothers Big Sisters, which is based in Waynesboro. “We rely heavily on the financial support of the business community, and it’s always heartening when corporate citizens like Best Buy step up in support of the work we are doing to benefit children throughout the Staunton, Augusta, and Waynesboro area and beyond.”

Best Buy’s grant will help boost the “100 Mentors for 100 Kids” campaign that Big Brothers Big Sisters launched earlier this year. Currently that campaign is at 84 percent of its goal of active matches and volunteers in process.

For more information on Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Central Blue Ridge and how you can become involved by mentoring a young person, please visit www.bbbsocbr.org. or call the Waynesboro office at 540.241.7626.
