Welcome to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Berks County, PA


 The 34th Annual Bowl For Kids' Sake is approaching!  Big Brothers Big Sisters of Berks County and our Prime Sponsor National Penn invite you form your bowling team (4 to 5 bowlers per team) to join us on April 9th at Hiester Lanes in Reading, April 23rd at Berks Lanes in Sinking Spring, or April 24th also at Berks Lanes.  Whether you are an avid bowler or a first-timer on the lanes, it doesn't matter...because it's not really about bowling.  It's about having FUN to HELP KIDS.  Call the agency at (610) 373-5544 to have a BFKS Team Packet mailed to you or follow the link below to form your team on-line.  Proceeds from BFKS help Big Brothers Big Sisters finance our four mentoring programs serving children facing adversity in Berks County.
Looking to show your company's commitment to the Berks County community?  Join National Penn as a Corporate Sponsor!  We have various levels of giving including Major Sponsor ($1,000) and Assisting Sponsor ($500).  Call Jim Smith at (610) 373-5544 to learn about the marketing benefits available to each sponsorship level.
Want to help but can't do the Corporate Sponsor level and you won't be able to bowl with us?  You or your company can sponsor a team of Little Brothers/Sisters and Big Brothers/Sisters to bowl for you.  It's only $300 for a full sponsorship and $150 for a co-sponsor.  Your company name will appear in our Souvenir Event Book, plus on our website for the rest of the year.  Call Jim Smith to learn more.

We need YOU!
Friendship is a powerful thing!  It's fun; most anyone can be a friend; and it's important.  Experiencing fun activities together and forming a trusting bond with a child can have a powerful and positive impact on the child.     We've all had someone in our lives -- other than a parent -- who made a difference to us.  This is what you can do for a child in our program.  It's really pretty simple...it's a matter of making yourself available on a consistent basis; it's having fun with a Little Brother or Little Sister; it's listening to them talk about whatever is going on in their lives; it's a series of small, teachable moments that -- in the end -- make a BIG diffference.  Just a "Little Time = Big Rewards" with YOUR help!    
Find out how you can be a BIG BROTHER or a BIG SISTER.  You can visit our "Become a Big" page for more, or just give us a call at (610) 373-5544. 



Our thanks to the Berks County Parrot Heads Club and to Jimmy & the Parrots for an exciting Cabin Fever event on January 30th.  Thanks also to the many people who came out to enjoy the night with us!
