Brittany's Bigs: Fun at Mr. Gatti's

Giving back to the community can be easy and fun. Hundreds of people in the Abilene area are taking the time to volunteer for local non-profits.

"It's going really great. I'm glad to have Sarah as a Big Sister. She is very nice," says Angel.

Angel is the Little Sister to Sarah Stephens. She says having a Big Sis is pretty great.

"They can teach us how to do stuff, and make a change in our lives," adds Angel.

It's that change that prompted Stephens to join the non-profit organization, Big Brothers Big Sisters.

 "I joined because I wanted to get involved with the community. I love kids and I just wanted to have a relationship with a kid and really make a difference in their life," said Stephens.

Stephens has been a big for almost a year and really enjoys exploring Abilene with her Little Sister.

"It's a lot of going to the events, going to the zoo, and going to Mr. Gatti's and just getting to see her every week and talking to her," adds Stephens

Stephens thinks that other adults in the Abilene community should sign up to be a Big Brother or a Big Sister too.

"Other people should join because it's just a lot of fun. It's really rewarding. It's not that big of a commitment and it's really worth it," says Stephens.
