For Immediate Release – April 3, 2017
Phone Medic announced a partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Kansas City (BBBSKC). Every repair completed at any of our Phone Medic locations contributes to BBBSKC organization.
“Phone Medic is a locally based company and very committed to giving back to the community. Big Brothers and Big Sisters is a great fit for our company and we are proud to be part of this partnership”, said Christine Ricci, Chief Executive Officer. “Both organizations share common beliefs on mentorship, developing the talent of our youth and inspiring community trust.”
On Sunday, more than 1,000 people gathered at the Overland Park Convention Center to celebrate friendship at the annual Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Kansas City Match Appreciation Banquet.
The red carpet-style event is designed to honor the more than 2,500 ‘Bigs’ and ‘Littles’ matched through the program in Kansas City. In addition to recognizing the Matches and their friendships, four outstanding volunteers were recognized as ‘Bigs of the Year.’ These ‘Bigs” were nominated by their Littles, their parents or their Case Managers in the BBBS program. A committee selected the winners and they were honored at the event.
Big Brothers Big Sisters and Phone Medic strive to build strong and enduring solutions, that help the community stay connected and live happy. Not a day goes by where a life isn’t improved. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Kansas City creates and supports life-changing friendships for children by matching them in a one-to-one friendship with an adult mentor. “Bigs” and “Littles” over time build friendships that help change perspectives and outcomes. Littles in the BBBSKC program report improved self-esteem, better grades and improved family relationships. There are over 1,200 active matches in Kansas City but there are still nearly 500 kids waiting for a Big. or more information on Big Brothers Big Sisters, please visit www.bbbskc.org today.
