El Dorado Disposal Service and Waste Connections Inc. presented a $45,000 donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters of El Dorado County June 27. The funds will be used to support a number of in-demand mentoring programs serving local children ages 5 to 18, and for recruiting and training adult volunteers.

It is the largest individual donation the solid-waste collection, transfer and recycling services provider has ever made to the Placerville-based nonprofit organization.

“Tough economic times and other factors are resulting in more and more broken families locally, and it’s our kids who are inevitably at risk,” said Sue VanDelinder, divisional vice president for El Dorado Disposal. “Organizations like Big Brothers Big Sisters rely on private support to give these children genuine hope, direction and the courage to persevere. Nothing is more important than improving their odds to succeed in the home, at school and in life.”

Last year, El Dorado Disposal, owned by Waste Connections of The Woodlands, Texas, committed to contribute a record amount to Big Brothers Big Sisters, along with several other service organizations in communities it serves. Hosting a tournament near its headquarters, Waste Connections and representatives from its Placerville operation raised more than $280,000 in May.

Each year, El Dorado Disposal employees contribute hundreds of hours and help raise thousands of dollars to support local charities and other groups in their communities.
