A Message From Rick & Lynne Merk
We thought Big Brothers Big Sisters was just for young adults - or only for single adults - but we were wrong. Bigs can be any age and couple's matches - like ours - are possible too. In 2017, we were lucky to meet our Little Brother, King. He has been a true blessing in our lives. We enjoy hiking, playing various sports, baking, playing board games, going to car shows, etc. King especially likes playing the game Aggravation - and he almost always beats us! King asks thoughtful questions - noticing things and wanting to know more. We are thankful to his parents for allowing us to be part of his life. We HOPE others will consider becoming Bigs - giving themselves the opportunity to make a difference in the life of an amazing young person while also enriching their own. It costs BBBS $1200 to create and support the BIg(s)/Little match for one year. Thanks for helping us in raising funds for this valuable mentoring program.
