Bank of America Donates $7,500 To Nutmeg Big Brothers Big Sisters
"In my capacity as a board member, I've seen firsthand how Nutmeg Big Brothers Big Sisters has helped to make a meaningful and lasting difference in the lives of disadvantaged children throughout Connecticut," said Meehan. "This can have a dramatic impact on our communities as well."
"We are very grateful for this generous gift from Bank of America," said Andy Fleischmann, president and CEO of Nutmeg Big Brothers Big Sisters. "Bank of America's long standing commitment to social responsibility is a core element of its values - and we applaud the bank's strategy of helping to create economically vibrant regions and communities through lending, investing and giving."
Nutmeg Big Brothers Big Sisters is an affiliate of Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, the longest established youth mentoring organization in the world (founded in 1904). It helps children from single and no-parent homes avoid negative behaviors and reach their highest potential. Nutmeg does this by creating and maintaining one-on-one relationships between at-risk children and professionally-screened, inspirational adult volunteers. Based in Hartford, Nutmeg was founded in 1966. It's funded, in part, by United Way organizations. It serves thousands of youngsters in 132 of the state's 169 municipalities.
