“Bigs” and “Littles” coming together to have some holiday fun Saturday (12/2/2017). 

For nearly 30 year the Big Brothers Big Sisters of West Central Ohio has been matching children in Allen, Hardin and Putnam counties with life-changing relationships. Because of the relationship that is built between the “Bigs” and the “Littles,” the students do better at school, better at home, and stay out of trouble more. So to thank the “Bigs” for their time they put into their “Littles” the organization held a Christmas party for where they were able to make crafts, play games and get their picture taken together, but also talk to other “Bigs” in the program. 

"For them to come socialize and talk to each other and meet other bigs that are in our program," says Gwenda Bevis, an enrollment specialist with BBBS of West Central Ohio. "And it’s also a time where they feel appreciated because we appreciate them, we do a little bit extra for our bigs as well." 

And the relationship built between the “Bigs and Littles” is a benefit to both of them. 

"I absolutely just enjoy the one on one, I get to spend with Makayla and giving back to my community," says Ericka Boddie, a "Big" with the program. "I am a life-long resident, so I wanted to give back so this is my way of helping the community"
