Big Brothers Big Sisters of Berks County is beginning to phase-in office operations. Beginning this week, the office will be open 8:30 am to 4:30 pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. While BBBS staff will continue to follow state guidance in working from home as much as possible during the GREEN phase, we will have two staff members in the office each of those three days.
However, we will continue to limit visitors from the public. Anyone needing to stop in the office should call 610-373-5544 before stopping at the office. BBBS staff will follow all safety guidelines including the wearing of masks when answering the door. We ask that any visitors — when an appointment to stop by is arranged — to do the same.
While we know that many of our Littles and Bigs missed getting together, group mentoring activities (COUL, COUL & Match, and Teen) will remain virtual until further notice. One-To-One Matches are permitted to meet face-to-face in accordance with the guidelines which have been disseminated to all match parties — but are encouraged to continue virtual meetings when possible.
During these continuing COVID-19 challenges, BBBS staff and our volunteers have been and will continue to DEFEND POTENTIAL in our Littles. Mentoring for our Littles is more important than ever, but we will continue to keep their safety our #1 priority as we move forward.
