Marshall Community Foundation Awards $5,000 to agency

‘I think deep down we all have a calling to give back.’
Big urges other young, single men to volunteer
John Bollinger stepped forward to become a Big Brother soon after moving to Kalamazoo for his job and urges other young, single men to consider doing the same. "I think we all deep down have a calling to give back, but often times put it off with worries about commitment or we just don’t think we have enough time. We give time to what we make a priority in our lives. From my experience, it’s been the best time spent."
A desire to directly introduce local students to higher education through mentoring is leading to the launch of a new Big Brothers Big Sisters’ program named Bigs on Campus. Kellogg Community College and Kalamazoo Valley Community College are piloting the program this upcoming school year.
