Todd DiRoberto of American Satellite announced today his plans for an Independence Day Charity Event an Initiative of Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Diego County, for Operation Bigs. Based on Mr. DiRoberto, all earnings will be going to Operation Bigs. Operation Bigs provides mentors to children of military families through Big Brothers Big Sisters’ School-Based plan, comments DiRoberto.
“We are extremely pleased to be giving and providing much needed funding to get a program as significant as this,” says DiRoberto. “Fundamentally, volunteers meet with children at their schools on base and provide quality one to one friendship time that is really very important to a kid whose parent was deployed,” included DiRoberto.
“Presently, Operation Bigs runs at five elementary schools on Camp Pendleton,” adds DiRoberto. “The new backing needed is for expansion to Silver Strand Elementary and Gateway Child and Youth Education Services in Point Loma,” stated DiRoberto. DiRoberto also remarked he would be thrilled to possess the initiative enlarged to serve his own community of Point Loma.
“Bigs and Littles meet for one hour sessions in the classroom, school library, school computer room, or on the school playground. Bigs and Littles generally meet once per week to read together, play sports or video games, or only speak about life and personal issues – just as friends do,” added Todd DiRoberto.
