Meet a Match:
Karen & Little Sisters Winifred and Taliyah

Big Sister Karen has been matched with biological sisters Winifred and Taliyah since 2011. They enjoy live theater, volunteering at various charity events and attending BBBS planned outings together.

Winifred and Taliyah are members of a local dance team and Karen tries to attend as many of their recitals as she can.

Karen is not only a Big Sister, she has also rallied Fedex volunteers to work at our SportsBall Gala and chaperone at BBBS Annual Fall-O-Ween and Christmas Party for over 15 years.

She hopes to lead by example and instill in Winifred and Taliyah, the importance of giving back to their community.
