Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) is blessed by the outpouring of support they receive on a daily basis from the Fond du Lac Community. Money, volunteer hours, product, the ways to support are endless.

A very special shout out goes to Hierl Insurance for their recent donation of $2000 to Big Brothers Big Sisters. Each holiday season, Hierl Insurance elects to send out a Thanksgiving card to all their clients, letting them know which non-profit they will be donating money to. This year, they chose Big Brothers Big Sisters.

“When Susan called to let me know BBBS was the chosen non-profit for 2016, I couldn’t believe our good fortune!” said Tammy Young, Executive Director of BBBS. “BBBS relies on the donations we receive to help children in Fond du Lac County. All money received, stays local and goes right back into our program. When Susan delivered a check for $2000, I was speechless. Hierl Insurance made a BIG difference!”
