Fort St. John Big Brothers to expand

Big Brothers and Sisters of Fort St. John is set to expand its family. 

After 25 years in this community, the organization is expanding its service area to include the communities of Dawson Creek, Rolla, Pouce Coupe, and Arras.

The expanded services will help cover some of the gaps left when the Dawson Creek Big Brothers and Sisters Agency was forced to close.

The local agency stresses the expansion, effective immediately, will not affect services in Fort St. John, and also notes money raised in any individual community will remain in that community.

Executive Director Danielle Armstrong says the organization has received several requests for assistance in these areas, Big Brothers and Sisters felt the expansion would be a positive and necessary step "to ensure that all children in our area have the opportunity to have a mentor in their lives."

For more information, you can call Danielle Armstrong, at (250) 787-9674 or e-mail fsjbbbs@telus.net.
