CEDAR HILL - Big Brothers Big Sisters has embarked on a campaign to enlist 45 mentors in 45 days aptly named "45 mentors in 45 days."

"Cedar Hill has 69 children on the waiting list for a "Big," said Diana Phillips, regional executive director of BBBS. Nearly 30 children have been waiting more than a year for a mentor and three more than two years.

BBBS has been serving children in Cedar Hill for several decades through a program that places mentors with chil-dren. Its newest venture is a school-based program, through which mentors spend a lunch break with their "Littles."

Phillips said the mission of the organization is to enrich, encourage and empower children to reach their highest potential through safe, positive, one-on-one mentoring.
