Northport Proudly Supports Big Brothers Big Sisters Annual Event!

Northport Proudly Supports Big Brothers Big Sisters Annual Event!

#bbbsglowbowl was a great event this year!

Northport is so happy to support our wonderful partners in education in this annual event. Northport has several mentors and four tutors that serve from 40 – 60 kindergarten through second grade students. Northport’s school grade went from a C to a B this year. Part of the school’s success can be attributed to the many services that are received from a plethora of community partners. Big Brothers Big Sisters is an extremely important part of Northport’s equation for success.

Many thanks to all the staff from Northport who came out to make this community event extraordinary.
