GREEN BAY — Big Brothers Big Sisters got a treat on Tuesday.

Bigs and littles were treated to a basketball fundamentals clinic with the UWGB Men’s basketball team.

12 children and their mentors got to learn from some of northeast Wisconsin’s best. Players say they love this opportunity to give back.

“We can have a positive effect on these kids and just for a day, you know, help out and have some fun, and hopefully that has a positive impact on them,” said Cody Schwartz, forward for the UWGB.

“We try to develop these partnerships in the community for our kids to have new experiences and also to help the other people in the community see that our program exists for a really good reason,” said Big Brothers, Big Sisters organizer Joy Wick.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of northeast Wisconsin serves more than 600 children of Brown, Door, and Shawano Counties.
