Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeastern Pennsylvania is holding its annual Monroe County Telethon virtually this year.
It will be aired on Blue Ridge Cable channel 13 and on YouTube from 6 to 8 p.m. this Sunday. The telethon will showcase vibrant acts from Monroe County as well as share the stories of local Bigs and Littles in the hopes of inspiring more volunteers to join the program or help guide someone in referring a child.
"Our Littles who are in the program, you'll see them talk about the program and why it has been important for them, and some neat reunions of matches of Bigs and Littles together they haven't seen in awhile," BBBS Northeastern PA Executive Director, Michelle Hamilton, said.
The organization has set a goal of raising $30,000 before the event is over Sunday night.
