Usually, when we think of making a difference in our community, bowling doesn’t come to mind. It was a lot of fun, though.
Recently, we had the chance to partner with a local chapter of the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization, here in Greenville, SC. They held an event to raise money for sponsoring mentoring relationships for children who are at-risk.
They describe their work as: “Big Brothers Big Sisters works to help broaden children’s perspectives and help them learn how to make good choices. “
We think children are awesome, and many of the people who work at Frontier volunteer with non-profit or religious organizations that help care for children in our city. We thought that this organization was worth our time and money (and that bowling sounded pretty fun) so we partnered with them for the event in June of this year.
We were able to help sponsor a mentor pair to give a child in the area a better shot at successfully navigating life and make good decisions along the way.
Not only did we have the chance to support such a great organization, but we also found out that we have a bowling phenom on our team. One of our converters bowled a 220 in the first game after not bowling for almost a year. The rest of us were happy to have broken double digit scores.
We believe our city is worth investing in, whether it is children or families through employment. We also believe that loving our city is important to growing into the kind of company that we want to be.
