On March 6, the Hodgenville Elementary School Beta Club bowled in a fundraiser for Big Brothers/Big Sisters, which serves Hardin and LaRue County. The money raised through Bowl for Kids’ Sake goes directly toward recruiting, enrolling and pairing volunteers with children needing them most.
Being a pro-active organization since 1904, Big Brothers/Big Sisters cultivate caring relationships with children before they become unreachable and they provide a positive source for filling the need youth have for belonging. Studies show Little Brothers and Sisters are:
•46 percent less likely to begin using illegal drugs;
•27 percent less likely to begin using alcohol;
•52 percent less likely to skip school;
•37 percent less likely to skip class;
•More confident in their schoolwork performance;
•Able to get along better with their families.
