INDIANAPOLIS –  On September 27, 2018, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana (BBBSCI) is partnering with Eli Lilly & Company through the United Way Connect Hearts at Home Initiative for the “Go BIG for Kids” campaign as part of Eli Lilly’s annual “Global Day of Service.”

On this day, over 200 volunteers from the Eli Lilly IT Research Team will distribute 747 BBBSCI yard signs to mentors (“Bigs”), families of youth served (“Littles”), community supporters, corporate partners, and school partners across Marion, Hamilton, and Johnson counties to raise awareness of the need for more mentors.

Volunteers will also distribute BBBSCI posters to businesses and chalk BBBSCI messaging along the Indianapolis Cultural Trail and the Fishers Nickle Plate District. Additionally, volunteers will chalk BBBSCI messaging in Polk Hill Trail in Greenwood.
