NORWICH Chenango County hosts at least one organization not found in any of the counties surrounding it. For the last 30 years, the Big Brother/Big Sister program has devoted itself to developing healthy environments for children in need.
The organization relies entirely volunteers to donate both time and heart in order to run and sponsor the program. In the last three decades, neither has been in short supply. We currently have a number of kids that are in need of a volunteer, but we have helped and are continuing to help a far larger number, said program director Lex Supensky.
We want awareness. People out there should know we are here. Currently there are 34 children waiting for volunteers, said Advisory Board Chair Suzanne Cleveland, who has been involved with the organization for 16 years.
