Thank you to Sorensen Smith LLP for their $500 donation made in memory of Tove Birgitte Norgaard Sorensen (June 5, 1944 – June 1, 2017), much loved wife to Holger and mother to Ingrid (Patrick) and Daniel (Yuri).  Our condolences to her family, may she rest in peace.


#purplenetproject

Across the Fraser Valley, there are hundreds of hoops without nets and hundreds of kids without Big Brothers or Big Sisters. This June, Big Brothers and Big Sisters of the Fraser Valley and Abbotsford Basketball Network are hanging purple basketball nets on hoops across the Fraser Valley, to bring Big and Little brothers and sisters together through basketball.  

You can join the #purplenetproject and make a meaningful difference in a kid's life by inquiring about volunteering to become a Big Brother or Big Sister. For the first 40 inquiries made in the month of June, we will hang a purple net on an empty basketball hoop in the Fraser Valley, just mention Purple Net Project when inquiring about volunteering here online, if calling us at 604-852-3331 or by email inquiry to bigbrothersbigsisters.ca

Hats off to Cap-It Genuine Truckware

Cap-it Genuine Truckware are leaders in their industry.  With nearly 30 stores across Canada, the ownership group of Cap-it are proud to give back to their community.  

Since 1977, when Hank Funk first began manufacturing truck canopies and selling them alongside RV supplies under the Rover Recreation Centre banner in Abbotsford, BC, the Funk family and its companies have been generous, active community supporters.

The establishment of the Cap-it name and franchise concept in 1990 enabled the Funk family to celebrate incredible growth and raise the standard in the truck accessory industry. 

Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Fraser Valley appreciates Cap-it's investment in the future of youth across Canada.  With its financial commitment to Big Brothers Big Sisters, we have been able to serve 100 at-risk youth locally.

Some of the other organizations that receive support from Cap-it and the Funk family include:

  • Food Banks Canada
  • Youth Unlimited
  • Athletes in Action
  • Power to Change
  • Canadian Gain Project
  • The Reach Gallery Museum Abbotsford

 Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Fraser Valley currently has dozens of children on the waitlist for a mentor in the Fraser Valley. Help us Start Something BIG by helping to sponsor matches.
