San Luis Obispo, CA – Big Brothers Big Sisters expands its Realtors’ Circle to include lenders under the leadership of Mike Belezzuoli of Central Coast Lending. Belezzuoli donates to the organization from each closed loan and Central Coast Lending matches his donation. Last year’s donations totaled $6,000 to provide mentors to local youth.
Executive Director Anna Boyd-Bucy said “Mike, Central Coast Lending and his clients are making our community better. The children who receive a mentor, because of Mike and Central Coast Lending’s generosity, will grow up to be better educated, wealthier and have stronger relationships.”
About Big Brothers Big Sisters:
For more than 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. Most children they serve are in single-parent, low-income families or in households where a parent is incarcerated. As a part of the nation’s largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, they make meaningful, monitored friendships between adult volunteers and children. Funding provides for a system of ongoing evaluation and support that is proven by independent studies to help families by improving the odds that participating children will perform better in school, avoid violence and illegal activities, and have stronger relationships with their parents and others.
