KWWL Initiative: Abby Turpin's "Waiting for my Mentor" for Big Brothers Big Sisters

Posted: Updated:

80 youth are ready to be matched today in the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Iowa program.  Can you spare just a few hours a month?

This month's Waiting Little is 8-years-old and lives in Waterloo with his grandmother.  He has been waiting for 9 months to get a Big Brother.

This bright and friendly African-American boy likes playing games, going to the park, and sports at the Cedar Valley Sportsplex. He can also be laid back, is a strong reader and enjoys art.

This Little is good-natured and a helper and friend to others. His ideal Big Brother will enjoy spending time with a great boy who would love a strong male role model to look up to.

Would you like to be his mentor?  Please contact BBBSNEIA here and mention this story.  Or contact me via email at aturpin@kwwl.com or on my Facebook page.
