Volunteers across southeast Ohio with the Big Brothers Big Sisters Organization were honored Tuesday evening.
The award dinner held at Bryan Place in downtown Zanesville was a time to recognize the hard work and service that these volunteers have given back to others.
"I think a lot of them don't really think they are doing anything that big. We know and I hope eventually they realize the huge difference they are making in the life of this child just from being a friend of them," said Development Coordinator Sarah Browning.
