Back-to-School Shopping Trip for 50 Lucky Littles

Thanks to a generous donation from Smithtown Acura, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Long Island was recently able to provide 50 children with a back-to-school shopping trip at Walmart! 50 lucky Littles, accompanied by their Big Brother or Big Sister, won the chance to participate in this match activity which took place at Walmart locations in both Islandia and Westbury.

The back to school shopping trip provided Littles with the opportunity to purchase important school related supplies, while also teaching them how to prioritize purchases and budget money. Each Big and Little match received a notepad, calculator and a spending budget of $100. The mentors assisted their mentees with identifying the items they needed most and helped them to budget the allotted money appropriately. 

BBBSLI wants to extend a big thank you to Smithtown Acura for the generous donation! We also want to wish all our Littles best of luck for the upcoming 2017-18 school year!
