Big Brothers Big Sisters, a national not-for-profit organization that focuses on the success and development of children, is expanding locally.

Our local Big Brothers Big Sisters unveiled their new "College Success Mentoring Program" and Technology Center.

The new addition was made possible by a generous donation of $25,000 dollars from Fifth Third Bank.

Carla Boggs, with Big Brothers Big Sisters, says this donation means the world to the organization because it brings new opportunities to kids that they've never had before.

"For Fifth Third to do something like step up and give a substantial amount of money, allows us to not only just say to the kids 'we really wanna help you succeed in life', but it allows us to do things that actually help them succeed in life."

Several employees with Fifth Third Bank were at the unveiling to show support of their company's investment in Big Brothers Big Sisters.
