Fox 55's brianna dahlquist spoke to a coordinator to see how people can volunteer for a few hours this spring.

Kids that are on the waiting list at big brothers big sisters need a mentor they can learn from now more than ever.

Mady hostetler, the development coordinator says it's a lot more children than you think."we have over 400 littles waiting to be matched for a big."

Mady says volunteering is a ton of fun!

"they're super fun!

They can be making slime; they could be cupcakes and canvas.

Especially with it getting warm outside."even if you can't dedicate the time to become a mentor, just by giving a child a ride home would be a tremendous help.

"we're always looking for help with that and even to transport littles from activities to their home."

Mady says, it's ?so?

Easy to get involved to volunteer for a few hours on your day off!

"just call into our agency or go to our website, there's a form that you can sign up for right there.

We'll get your background check in order then we'll get you signed up for a day!"
