Volunteer Opportunity for Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Great Lakes Bay Region

Lunch Box Learners is looking for volunteers to read with a student one day a week at various elementary schools. Volunteer applications for many Midland area schools are now being accepted.

Dow retiree Sally Ann Sutton currently serves as a mentor/reading tutor. “I think the greatest thing is the relationship between your student and you,” said Sutton. “It’s really rewarding to see the young person develop.”

“To see the enthusiasm of a child who can talk to you and trust you is great,” Sutton added. “Once your own grandkids move away, it provides the opportunity to “re-live” being a grandparent.  It makes you feel young again and appreciated. I really enjoy the program and look forward to it each week.”
