This Timber Bench was generously handcrafted from K&R Wood just for the auction. The children and youth they serve are particularly at risk. More than 50 per cent of youth served in Big Brothers Big Sisters programs face four or more adversities in their daily lives. Their risk factors are growing as the stress that our young people experience has been deepened during the COVID-19 pandemic. The anxiety and financial toll imposed by stay-at-home orders means families need more help than ever from a system that is less able to provide it. This auction and other fundraising initiatives will help them stabilize their programs so we are there for the kids that need us the most. (Submitted by BBBS Lacombe)
