The Baker women’s soccer team stopped by the Big Brothers and Big Sisters Club of Decatur, Ala., on Tuesday evening to help decorate ornaments for Christmas and spend some quality time making new friends acting as a “Big” for the evening.
Typically a “Big” is an adult volunteer (over the age of 18) who has agreed to spend at least six hours a month with a child enrolled in Big Brothers Big Sisters for the period of one year.
Big Brothers Big Sisters is a non-profit mentoring organization that matches children (ages 5-15) with an adult volunteer. Most of the children in the program come from single parent homes and are in need of additional attention, time and support.
“I think our girls really walked the walk tonight,” said head coach Nate Houser. “We played exceptionally well on the field and followed it up with some quality time that everyone enjoyed.”
The Wildcats return to action on Thursday morning in the NAIA Women’s Soccer National Championship Quarterfinals against William Jewell College.
