WARSAW — For the 11th year in a row, the Kosciusko Board of Realtors partnered with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Indiana and hosted “littles” and their “bigs” for their Boots for Scholars program. On Saturday, Nov. 4, KBOR met 25 children and their mentors and parents at Warsaw’s Shoe Carnival.
The adults assisted the children in shopping and spending $50 gift cards, provided by KBOR, to purchase winter boots. KBOR also purchased each child winter socks, gloves and hats.
KBOR and Big Brothers Big Sisters have partnered with Shoe Carnival 11 years in a row and would like to thank the excellent staff of Shoe Carnival for their hospitality, including opening an hour early.
The shopping spree to buy winter boots was followed by a breakfast party at the Kosciusko Board of Realtors Board office.
Big Brothers Big Sisters mission is to help children reach their potential through support and one-to-one relationships. That mission falls right in line with KBOR’s belief that families are made stronger when different partners in the community work together to assist and support those families as needed.
