Big Brothers Big Sisters 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 YESCO (N5528 Miranda Way, FDL) for their recent renovation to the Big Brothers Big Sisters electronic sign.  YESCO donated their time and product, replaced all light bulbs with LED light bulbs, cleaned and got the sign up and running at full speed.

YESCO provides lighting and sign repair services, as well as energy-efficient lighting and retrofits in and around Fond du Lac, Oshkosh and West Bend.  On the cutting edge of energy-efficiency when it comes to signs and lighting, YESCO consults daily with top experts to bring you the latest energy-efficient lighting technology and cost savings.

“When Ryan called from YESCO and said they wanted to donate the supplies and labor to get our sign up and running properly, I was thrilled!” said Tammy Young, Executive Director of Big Brothers Big Sisters.  “As a non-profit most of our budget is designated for programming.  YESCO donating their time and product allowed BBBS to have a properly lit and working outdoor sign.  I couldn’t be happier!”
