It takes a lot of good people to make Frederick County’s Big Brothers Big Sisters the successful mentoring organization it is. Even so, Gail Wood is a special volunteer.

On Sunday, during the Bowl for Kids’ Sake fundraiser, Ms. Wood gave the local Big Brothers Big Sisters a check for more than $ 12,280.
