Langley Federal Credit Union recently donated $10,000 to Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Virginia Peninsula to support its youth mentoring program.
Big Brothers Big Sisters serves children throughout the Peninsula, particularly those who are living in single parent homes, living in poverty, coping with parental incarceration or have parents in the military who are deployed or have been killed in action.
Last year Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Virginia Peninsula served 642 participants, and Langley’s donation will allow the organization to continue and expand its current mentoring services.
“By supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters we are able to change the lives of many local children who are in need of guidance and support,” said Natasha Merz, Langley’s vice president of commercial lending. “Kids are our future and the positive relationships nurtured by BBBS have a direct and lasting effect in helping the children to have greater confidence, avoid risky behaviors and achieve educational success.”
