TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kansas is still matching kids with their Bigs throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, although they are doing it virtually.
According to Eric Maydew, Director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kansas, the organization has over 180 matches that are continuing virtually.
Maydew and Josh Barr, owner of Graystone Painting, are reaching out to the community for support during this pandemic.
“Eric and I came up with The Big Night In fundraising event as a way to raise money and not have people together,” Barr said.
The two researched how they could create a fundraising project for Big Brothers Big Sisters and keep everybody apart while doing so. For a $10 donation, donors are eligible to win $400 worth of gift cards to various restaurants.
