You can change the life of a child in your community just by donating your time.

Big Brothers Big Sisters say they need the community’s help to find good matches for the 68 children on their waiting list. Development Coordinator, Kali Burkhart says the connection changes the lives of the people involved.

"A lot of people will say that they think they start Big Brothers Big Sisters to make a difference in the life of a child, but in return the relationship make a difference in their life," said Burkhart.

This year their organization was chosen to be represented by the Dancing with the Divas Fundraiser on July 27th.

" Kevin Knapp is one of the celebrity dancers and he actually picked our organization to benefit from the fundraiser so we are currently taking donations and trying to raise money for the Dancing with the Fivas event," said Burkhart.

Burkhart says the money raised at the event will go towards screening, recruiting, and matching area bigs with local children.
