Big & Mini is proud to announce the Friend and Mentor (FAM) Program! While Big & Mini initially began with the goal of connecting seniors and younger members, after much hard work, the Big & Mini team has been able to expand its outreach by virtually connecting volunteers to people with cognitive and/or physical disabilities. Inspired by her brother, Chelsea Vu created the program with Big & Mini with a goal to not only make connections but also to establish friendships! FAM pairs can form their friendships by playing games, reading together, or just chatting! Sign up now! https://bigandmini.org/famsite
