South Shore Big Brothers Big Sisters: Moving Forward

South Shore Big Brothers and Big Sisters has received a one-time grant from the province. The 9-thousand dollars will help the organization until it can fund-raise and apply for more grant money later on. Lunenburg MLA Pam Birdsall went to bat for the organization. She made the right connections in the Dexter government to make the 9-thousand dollars a reality. "Financial pressures have been difficult and a lot of the time is spent by the staff to fund raise to keep these programs going so this is a situation where some one-time relief was needed to keep things going," and keep Birdsall delivered the cheque to Big Brothers/Big Sisters in the past few days.
