Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Diego County’s Operation Bigs is a one-to-one mentoring program for military children, which provides an extra layer of support to local military families.
Volunteers meet with their Little Brothers and Little Sisters for one hour one day a week (times and dates are the same every week) at the child's school. During that hour the volunteer and child play games, sports, and do other fun activities together, while building a friendship.
Operation Bigs serves four schools on Camp Pendleton, the need for caring, committed mentors to support the children of those who defend our country remains urgent. We are currently recruiting civilian, retired, & active military adult volunteers - come join them! It's a great way to make a difference in a child's life while having fun at the same time!
Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age and able to commit to the program for one calendar year. For more information, contact the Operation Bigs Hotline at (858) 746-9173 or email at OpBigs@sdbigs.org.
