Lori said her favorite part of being a mentor is knowing Allison. “She’s a great kid.”
BBBS is always looking for mentors, as there are far more children waiting to be matched than there are available mentors. Lori encourages everyone to consider being a mentor to a little brother or sister.
“I think people have this idea that it takes a ton of time and work. But if you have a couple hours a week, it’s not that big of a time commitment and it’s a lot of fun,” Lori said. “I get to play with Legos.”
Anyone interested in becoming a big sibling to a child in Decatur County should contact BBBS at 663-7556. There are a variety of programs available with different levels of involvement and time commitment.
BBBS will also be hosting Bowl for Kids’ Sake March 2, at Parkside Lanes. This is the chief fundraiser for BBBS and its importance cannot be understated. Whether one chooses to get involved as a mentor or simply as a generous donor, every person can make a difference in the life of a local child.
