Big Brother Big Sister Foundation Holiday Clothing Drive

SMPS has partnered with the Big Brother Big Sister Foundation (BBBSF) for a third year to promote a holiday clothing drive. Join fellow A/E/C firms this holiday season in supporting the Big Brother Big Sister Foundation (BBBSF) in an industry-wide clothing drive!

SMPS challenges you and your firm to clean out your closets for a good cause. Get your firm involved by asking your co-workers to gather gently worn clothing and shoes during the months of November and December. BBBSF will pick up the clothing at your office and weigh the items. The top three firms who donate the most clothes (determined by weight) will be honored at the SMPS Holiday party!

How it Works:

  1. Sign up your company by registering on the left-hand side of this landing page.
  2. Reach out to your coworkers and ask them to donate any gently worn clothing and shoes from now until January 10th, 2020. BBBSF accepts clothing, shoes, and coats for adults, children, and infants. Promotional flyers that you can distribute within your firm can be downloaded by clicking here and here.
