WESTON (WAOW) -- Kay Young makes a difference in the life of a child. She met her little sister, April, almost two years ago.
"We had kinda a shaky start at first. She was shy, wasn't really sure, but we've just really bonded. We are best friends," said Young.
Together they're navigating life one animal at a time.
"We have two dogs, four guinea pigs, a rabbit, a mouse and tropical fish.
Young and her 4th grade little just joined 4H. It's something April wanted to do and Young was more than willing to help with.
"It's just her love of animals. So, it's something we had to share together."
Young talked to us during this weekend's Bowl For Kids' Sake about her love of the organization and how the pair spends their time together.
"We color, we do arts and crafts. We clean animal cages. We watch movies. We go to her favorite restaurant and cook."
The money raised at this event funds activities bigs do with their littles. Young and April see each other about three times a week. Young believes in the organization and the impact it has on the youth in our community.
"I just wanted to make a difference in a child's life- to spend some time with a small child and have fun and play and be able to help them through the hard years."
And, it's a relationship that's benefited both. Young says she sees growth in both of them as the time goes by.
"She has become much more confident. She's much more outgoing with people. She's a great kid to begin with. And, she's just really funny. She brings a lot of joy to my life."
