Bob’s Big Give was started over a decade ago for the purpose of helping our less fortunate neighbors. The key to the donating is that the funds go 100% directly to those in need. And I mean a 100%!
This has always been a grassroots effort. We have raised funds in a number of ways - selling Blount shirts, hats, etc…donated by Blount and also have a number of vendor partners that make donations.
Over the last 10 years I have asked my fellow workers, friends and relatives not to get me birthday or Christmas presents but rather to make a donation to the cause. The beauty of all of this fundraising is that I personally match the amount. I revel each year as the number grows and we get to help more and more of our neighbors.
Bob's Big Give
Tis the season of giving
Kick off this Christmas season and help make it one to remember by graciously giving a donation small or large. Every donation helps make a child’s Christmas dreams come true. All your donations are 100% matched by me.
