Guam - This morning Jack-In-The-Box Guam presented a $10,000 check to Big Brothers Big Sisters as part of a national partnership between the two organizations.

Executive director of Big Brothers Big Sisters Vanessa Estella told KUAM News, "With this funding we're receiving it's going to go towards promoting our current work and also toward expanding our work geared to low-to-moderate income families, so we're really appreciative."

Thanks to this donation they will now have money to fund matchings between children and mentors, a six-week "skills to pay the bills" employment program, as well as an internship program for underprivileged children, all of which are geared to help break the cycle of poverty.
