Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro is partnering with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Newfoundland (BBBS) with $10,000 in support of its Go Girls! and Game On programs. These programs use a group mentorship approach in providing young teens with information and support for active living, balanced eating, improved self-esteem and feeling good.

Libra House is currently running a capital campaign to raise the remaining funding required to complete this expansion project. Hydro is proud to continue its support for an organization that reaches out to those experiencing violence and helps improve not only the quality of life for individuals, but for the community as a whole.

Debbie Molloy, Manager of Labour Relations with Hydro and Merissa Wiseman, Communications Advisor with Nalcor are both active volunteers with BBBS. “One easy way to get involved is through entering a team in the Bowl for Kids Sake, it’s a fun event and the biggest fundraiser of the year for BBBS,” said Debbie.

BBBS are currently recruiting young people between the ages of 18-30 to mentor for the Go Girls! and Game On programs. “I encourage anyone interested in playing a role in helping a young person feel good about his or herself to consider volunteering with BBBS,” said Merissa.
