Big Brother Big Sister Clothing Drive

Join your fellow A/E/C firms this holiday season, in supporting Big Brother Big Sister Foundation (BBBSF) in an industry-wide clothing drive! SMPS and BBBSF invite you and your firm to take part in the SMPS/BBBSF Holiday Challenge.

How it Works:

Sign up now on the SMPS Boston website. If you sign up before 14 December 2018, BBBSF will create custom “bag tags” with your firm’s name. These tags will be attached to each bag of clothing when the items are picked up.

Reach out to your coworkers and ask them to donate any gently worn clothing and shoes from now until 31 December. BBBSF accepts clothing, shoes, and coats for adults, children, and infants.

Schedule a pickup! Just call/email: Ken Higgins 774-776-7240 / khiggins@bbbsfoundation.org (if emailing please cc: Steve Beck sbeck@bbbsfoundation.org). Plan to call or email a day or two ahead of time to schedule your pick up date. When calling for a pickup, please mention that your firm is participating in the SMPS Holiday Challenge. All clothing pick-ups must be scheduled before 3 January 2019.

The Prizes:

  • First Prize:  Big Brother Big Sister Foundation will award a prize to the company that donates the most clothes (determined by weight).
  • Second Prize: $75 Amazon Gift Card Donated by SMPS Boston
  • Third Prize: $50 Amazon Gift Card
  • Small Firm Prize:  SMPS Boston will award a $50 Amazon Gift Card to the small firm (under 40 people) that donates the most clothes.

Important: If you notice that the donations are piling up quickly, you can schedule multiple pick-ups.
