Big Brothers Big Sisters of Guelph would like to thank Robinson Buick GMC for their generous donation to help support mentoring youth in our community. “Cars for a Cause” was a remarkably successful campaign run by the local dealership in 2022, which involved a $25 donation to BBBSG for every car sold over six months. The total donation, supporting 600 youth enrolled in BBBSG’s mentoring programs, amounted to $11,525.
“This incredible gift will ensure that our organization can swiftly and intentionally match at-promise youth with a trained volunteer mentor, supporting these matches to help the child reach their full potential,” said Executive Director Michael Treadgold. “Community support like this is critical to support the health and well-being of so many youth in the local community.
“Big Brothers Big Sisters of Guelph is so thankful and appreciative of the team at Robinson Pontiac Buick GMC for their generous support and the Cars for A Cause campaign.”
