On Tuesday, Dec. 3 between 5:00 and 8:00 The Hop on Merrimon Avenue will donate 50% of sales during the evening to BBBS! Plus Art Buzz Kids, their neighbors on Merrimon Avenue, will provide an open art demonstration! Bigs and Littles are invited to attend!

During this activity, we’ll be looking into the “Sparks” that motivate and inspire youth and help them thrive in adolescence, focusing them on a positive path instead of riskier behaviors.
This fun, interactive activity is for Bigs and Littles working together! The session will be led by guest presenters who are Prevention Specialists in health education for youth from RHA/ARP Services.
