For more than 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that every child can 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 for the return of our holiday gift drive, Distribute a Smile, to spread holiday cheer to children across North America during the season of giving," said Seth Evenson, Director of Customer Experience Management for AVAD LLC. "We want to thank our participating vendors for their support, as well as our dealers for helping us to make our second annual holiday gift drive a success."

AVAD encourages dealers to participate in Distribute a Smile from December 5th to 16th at each of their branch locations in U.S. and Canada or online. Donated items will be given to local Big Brothers Big Sisters branches near the respective AVAD branches prior to the upcoming Christmas holiday.
