AZ AIR TIME PARTNERS WITH BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS TUCSON FOR MONTH OF FEBRUARY TO RAISE FUNDS & AWARENESS OF THE NON-PROFIT’S MENTORING PROGRAM
Round-Up Your Change to Help Support BBBST
TUCSON (Jan. 29, 2014)—AZ Air Time Jump Centers is partnering with Big Brothers Big Sisters Tucson (BBBST) for the entire month of February to raise money and increase awareness about the non-profit’s volunteer mentor program.
According to Marie Logan, CEO of BBBST, BBBST currently has 150+ children that are waiting for mentors. This program hopes to help “End the Wait” and raise funds for mentor recruiting efforts. BBBST currently has 350+ children with paired mentors in the Tucson area. The 150+ children currently waiting for qualified mentors is the largest the Tucson organization has ever had.
According to AZ Air Time, the entire month of February will be dedicated to helping out BBBST by requesting donations from its customers with a simple “round-up” program and will host a BBBST fundraising and mentor appreciation night on March 24th at the Tucson store.
“We were alarmed when we heard that a large number of Tucson kids are waiting for qualified mentors and we wanted to help spread the word and encourage people to volunteer,” said Barry Jenkins, one of Air Time’s owners. “In addition to raising funds for the program, we will be actively educating our staff members and customers about the mentoring program.”
AZ Air Time will be asking customers to “round-up their change” and will provide them with an opportunity to make additional donations on behalf of BBBST. Additionally, AZ Air Time will offer discounts on admission and memberships to BBBST mentors so the mentors have an affordable option to spend time with their paired children. The discount program will be offered long-term to all BBBST mentors in Tucson.
AZ Air time is Tucson’s largest indoor trampoline park, featuring 25,000-square-feet of supervised fun for the entire family. Jumpers can play dodgeball, shoot baskets or jump for the fun of it! There are separate jump areas for different age groups, daytime adult fitness classes, plus birthday party and group event areas, a VIP party room and a snack bar.
AZ Air Time is located next to Costco at 3931 W. Costco Drive. Call 520-219-8464 or visit AzAirTime.com for additional information. For more information about BBBST visit their website at tucsonbigs.org or call 520-624-2447.
