After several years of behind the scenes work by various agency representatives, Big Brothers Big Sisters Association of Florida announced this week the creation of a specialty license plate in support of the Big Brothers Big Sisters agency’s mentoring programs around the state.
People have the option of selecting one of four specialty plates approved by the state. Proceeds from the sale of the Big Brothers Big Sisters plate will allow motorists to directly support and help raise revenue for Big Brothers Big Sisters Association of Florida. Production can begin once 1000 vouchers, which can be obtained at any local county tax collector’s office for $25, have been purchased. Once the plates enter production, the vouchers can be exchanged for the new specialty plate.
Big Brothers Big Sisters Association of Florida officials welcome this opportunity to encourage Florida’s motorists to help fund Big Brothers Big Sisters Association of Florida’s mentoring programs, in addition to helping create state-wide awareness.
