Woodforest National Bank® Partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters

It is through partnerships with caring and compassionate individuals, organizations, and businesses like Woodforest National Bank that enable our organization to serve the community.

Woodforest National Bank has been an active partner with Big Brothers Big Sisters since 2013. A grant in 2014 allowed our organization to purchase a new computer for our mentoring center. As a data driven organization, the technology allows us to track demographic information, allow staff to manage more matches and service them effectively, and administer gather important outcome measurement data used to improve our impact. A gift in 2015 purchased a color printer for local use. This allowed us to produce high quality informational and marketing pieces to tell the BBBS story.

In 2016, a $1,000 grant will be used to update aged furniture in the Mentoring Center. The Center is open daily and welcomes volunteers and families enrolling and actively participating in our one-to-one mentoring programs.

The investment by Woodforest National Bank, which seems small to some, has had a significant impact on our success. The enrollment of children and volunteers has increased steadily over the past four years. The average length of the matches in our care has also increased significantly due to our improvement efficiencies.

Joni Todd, Woodforest’s Macomb Branch Manager, has been an active member of our Community Board for 3 years, and her support has been substantial and invaluable. Joni is an outstanding person, cares about kids and her community, and has facilitated the partnership between BBBS and Woodforest National Bank since the very beginning. We are glad and proud to have her as a member of our team.

On behalf of all the kids, parents, and volunteers at Big Brothers Big Sisters, we thank Woodforest National Bank for its continued and very generous support. We would also like to thank Joni for her outstanding service to our organization and the community!
