Central Coast Funds for Children has awarded $1,000 to Big Brothers Big Sisters’ School Based program.

“We are so thankful for Central Coast Funds for Children’s support,” said Anna Boyd-Bucy, executive director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Luis Obispo. “Their donation will help our School Based program at Sinsheimer Elementary, where each mentor relationship will result in two youth served. These children go on to have higher educational aspirations, greater confidence and better relationships with family and friends.”
