· The two have been matched with BBBS for 2 years now. These are specific things they have done together:
o American Cancer Society Hope Lodge- They take a meal once a month for the guests at the lodge. They are doing this in memory of their friend Tori Kleinsteuber who DeJanea met at the lodge while receiving treatment in Lubbock. This summer they are going to do crafts with the guests there.
o Seen the nutcracker, swimming in the summer, school events, The Lubbock Arts Festival, movies, Princess Camp at First Methodist Church, go to the library, cook, have lunch at school together, I read to her class, Joyland, she has attended Koda’s Kamp, go to a friend’s garden and collect fresh vegetables and eggs, Texas Tech Volley ball clinic, Texas Tech basketball game and football games, have gone to some BBBS events and just hang out
· The biggest lesson is that DeJanea is learning that it is important to give back to the community.
· Big Brothers Big Sisters currently needs 150 volunteers to be sign up and be matched with a Little Brother or Little Sister.
