It’s an easy give that will taste so good. Go to any COBS Bread location in Vancouver (find one here!) on Saturday, May 28 or Sunday, May 29 and buy a scone. With every scone purchase 50₵ will be donated to Big Brother Big Sisters. Yeah COBS Bread…this is a great idea!!

Ooohhhh $25.00 worth of fresh baked goods. Yum, I like this! There are so many ways to give in our world but right this minute with my stomach is growling I can’t think of a better one than this.

“Working with Big Brothers Big Sisters over the last few years has been an eye opening experience. We have seen firsthand the positive impact a Big Brother or a Big Sister can have on a Little” says Elise Gillespie, Vice President of COBS Bread.

“COBS Bread has raised $31,800 for Big Brothers Big Sisters since 2009, which has allowed agencies across the country to provide many children with the support of a mentor.  In addition, COBS has raised awareness of the urgent need for more Big Brother and Big Sister volunteers. COBS’ in-store campaigns have inspired many men and women to volunteer their time to provide encouragement and support to a young person in need in their community.  We are so grateful for COBS’ support of mentoring,” says Shannon Newman-Bennett, Executive Director of Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland.

So go grab a your favourite scone this weekend to give and to win. 365give can’t wait to hear what your favourite flavour is and we will enter you to win!

Time Commitment: As long as you can make your scone last

Cost: The price of your scones
