For more than 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that every child has the ability to succeed and thrive in life. As the nation’s largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, Big Brother Big Sisters strives to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better. Big Brother Big Sisters matches adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ranging from the ages of 6 through 18, in communities across the world to develop positive and lasting relationships in the lives of young people.

“We are excited to host Distribute a Smile – our first holiday gift drive – and we invite our dealers to participate in this wonderful opportunity to brighten others’ households during the season of giving back,” said Lei Lei Trock, senior marketing manager at AVAD. “We are thankful and appreciate the large amount of support from our participating vendors and we hope it encourages our dealers to donate.”

AVAD encourages dealers to participate in Distribute a Smile from December 7th to 18th at each of the 23 branch locations in U.S. and Canada.
