ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.: On Dec. 6th, 2014, Kids Wish Network enabled Big Brothers Big Sisters of Pinellas County to bring joy to kids facing life-altering circumstances at its 7th annual “Sports Buddies Day”. More than 300 “Bigs” and “Littles” enjoyed the array of new gifts donated by Kids Wish Network through its Holiday of Hope Gift Bank program.

“We would like to take the opportunity to thank Kids Wish Network for the generous assortment of toys for the Littles in our program,” writes Executive Director Patrick Craven. “By supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters, you help make our community stronger.”

Big Brothers Big Sisters Pinellas County picked up their Holiday of Hope Gift Bank stuffed full of board games, bags, makeup, beauty supplies, jewelry, cars, books, educational games, bubbles, room décor, sporting goods and much more earlier this month. The organization distributed every gift at its event.

“Thank you Kids Wish Network for your support of Big Brothers Big Sisters,” adds Volunteer Experience Coordinator Tanya. “Every little in attendance was able to pick a toy for themselves and for all their siblings for Christmas!”

“Sports Buddies Day” is an unforgettable sporting experience that helps more than 300 “Bigs” and “Littles” each year. The event provides opportunities for adults to help build friendships and model good sportsmanship while giving children the chance to experience sporting and recreational events that were more than likely out of reach.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Pinellas County is just one of 22 local organizations that have received a Holiday of Hope Gift Bank so far this season. Through the help of generous Guardian Angel donors, Kids Wish Network is able to provide entire pallets of new gifts and toys to kids in need.
