When Terence Tracey of Seymour was paired with Jay Mitchell, 9, of Seymour in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program, Mitchell wouldn’t be the only child benefiting from the program.
“I got involved through my son,” Tracey said.
Tracey wanted to teach his son about volunteering and, when faced with the many opportunities to volunteer, Tracey’s son chose Big Brothers Big Sisters.
Because his son couldn’t be the big for kids his own age, Tracey stepped in.
“Like you always say, I can try and tell him, but I’ve got to show him myself,” Tracey said.
Tracey, Mitchell and his son were one of the teams participating in the Big Brothers Big Sisters Bowl for Kids Sake on Sunday afternoon.
