The “Big Brothers/Big Sisters” program for McDonough and Warren Counties has plenty of children who need an adult role model. There aren't enough adult volunteers to match with the children.
Board member Dan Yoder and program director Kim Lampitt said volunteers fill a gap in the life of a child. She said most children are nominated by a school teacher.
She said the program has 46 active matches. There are 15 children on the waiting list for an adult mentor.
