We were so happy to have the Big Brothers Big Sisters of America at our Landside location on August 26!
This event had us reminiscing on Dive into Reading this past June, when elementary aged students and volunteers mentors joined us for a one-of-a-kind dining experience. Last week, we had about 15 kids, along with around 12 volunteers and staff join us in the morning for a special breakfast with reading time.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of America is an invaluable asset for the youth in our community and we are so happy they came to visit us for breakfast!
