KWWL Initiative: Abby Turpin’s “Waiting for my Mentor” for Big Brothers Big Sisters

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Iowa needs you! 90 youth in a 6 county area (Black Hawk, Bremer, Buchanan, Butler, Fayette and Floyd) are ready to be matched with mentors.

August’s Waiting Little is a 10-year-old girl in the Waterloo area who has been waiting more than a year for a Big Sister.

She is described as sweet, caring and quiet.

This Little Sister likes to play games, go bowling, be outside and play with dolls. And she has the great life goal of being a doctor when she grows up!

A Big Sister could help this Little Sister experience new activities and develop her social skills, as well as talk about her hopes and dreams.

Would you like to be her mentor?  Please contact BBBSNEIA here and mention this story.  Or contact me via email at or on my Facebook page.

And you can learn more about the "Waiting for my Mentor" initiative here.
