Big Brothers Big Sisters of Door County works hard to create meaningful connections between its mentor volunteers and the children they help guide. The group uses personality traits and common interests in their matching process to help leave a lasting impact on a child in need. That has paid dividends as one generation's Littles become the next era of Bigs according to Door County Coordinator Patty O'Rourke.
Passing down the tradition of being a Big or a Little from sibling to sibling has helped fuel explosive growth for the organization. Matches in 2019 are far outpacing 2018’s rate.
