Tune into MSNBC today between 3 - 4 p.m. EST to hear more about Mike and Roberto’s story as they talk live with Kate Snow about Giving Tuesday.
Today, Big Brother Mike and Little Brother Roberto will share how mentorship has changed both of their lives for the better, forever. Recently, a random fire in Jersey City left Roberto and his family displaced for the holidays. With donations and help from Big Brother Mike and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Essex, Hudson and Union Counties, Roberto and his family were able to secure transitional housing and have plans for a permanent new home. This crisis, however, was just one way that Big Brother Mike has helped Roberto and his family. Mike’s mentoring and support is what has truly had an ongoing impact on his Little Brother’s life.
