Scottsdale —Dane Baxter, Staff Accountant, is an active volunteer with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arizona (BBBS), spending several hours a month mentoring his little brother.
Baxter and little brother Damien get together at least once a week to bowl, go to the gym, play football, and more. They recently had the chance to meet Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald at BBBS’s holiday event.
Baxter has been involved with BBBS for four years. It’s an organization that played an important role in his life.
“I got involved because I was a part of the program when I was a child. I did not have many positive male role models in my life and BBBS provided me with a big brother, who ended up being a great mentor to me. Because of this, I wanted to pay the program back the best way I knew how and that was to become a big brother,” said Baxter.
The program pairs children ages 6 to 18 with role models in one-to-one relationships who spend time with the kids providing advice and inspiration while having fun.
