Big Brothers Big Sisters hopes to have another successful year of connecting “bigs” and “littles” together at area schools. The organization has started on-site programs at the school districts of Southern Door, Gibraltar, and Sturgeon Bay during its first five years in the county. Patty O’Rourke from Big Brothers Big Sisters of Door County says the relationship between the high school students and elementary school children continued through the summer even when classes were out of session.
O’Rourke is grateful for the volunteers the organization does have but hopes more matches are made this year through Big Brothers Big Sisters’ on-site and off-site programs.
