Each year around Christmastime, the staff, volunteer mentors and kids of the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization take some time out to celebrate another year of successful mentoring.

This year, the group gathered at the Blue Heron community clubhouse in Punta Gorda, where they enjoyed lunch and snacks, crafts and games, a big trivia contest with lots of prizes, and presents for all. Santa and Mrs. Claus made a splash when they arrived, and handed out the presents to each “Little.”

The Big Brothers Big Sisters is always looking for donations and volunteers to mentor children. The organization has several programs, including in-school mentoring and Sports Buddies.
