Big Brothers Big Sisters of Nevada County’s “Big Tree of Giving,” which displays gift tags with “wish list” items for each one of the agency’s “Littles,” is now at SPD Market in Nevada City through Dec. 9.
“We like to make sure each of our “Littles” has a gift under the tree during this holiday season,” explains Suze Pfaffinger, program coordinator. “We offer this giving opportunity to the community so our ‘Bigs,’ who give so much all year long to their ‘Littles,’ don’t feel obligated.” Donation need to be returned to SPD no later than Dec. 9 to ensure delivery to children in time for the holiday season.
Cash donations to Big Brothers Big Sisters for match activities will also be accepted at SPD. Those wishing to donate via credit card can do so online at http://www.bigsofnc.org through the PayPal link.
