Big Brothers Big Sisters of Livingston County is asking for help raising money to better support area children.

The 3rd annual High 5 for Littles campaign is underway with a goal of raising $15,000. Officials say the goal is reachable if everyone donates just $5. Big Brothers Big Sisters provides a variety of school-based programs and mentoring for kids from the age of 5 and up, including those in the foster care system. Officials say the money raised during the High 5 for Littles campaign will better allow the organization to support their one-on-one community based mentor program as well as site-based programs, including Rockin’ Readers, which pairs up a young student who may have trouble reading, with a high schooler.
