We have a great example of how some adults in our community decide they need to give back and spend a little time volunteering.
Jenny Carter of Louisville is a like a lot of us with a full time, demanding job. So when on earth does she find the time to be a Big Sister? She told us it's easier than even she imagined.
8-year-old Tamara Harper is bowling up a storm with her new Big Sister, Jenny Carter.
Jenny is a Big Springs Country Club employee who actually works with the club to set up events for kids. But she told WHAS11, she wanted to be more involved with helping a young person grow up.
Tamara, a St. Matthews Elementary School student, is one happy, bright little girl. She's thrilled to around Jenny.
And Tamara said her mom, who signed her up for the Big Sisters program, is a great one.
No strikes in this relationship which is setting up to run a long, long time.
We hear over and over that Big Brothers-Big Sisters can find you the perfect match. We get the chance to see them at early stages and some that have lasted for decades. There's a young person out there, ready for your time and fun!
If you want to help a young person, call 1-877-588-2300.
