Stan’s role as Hooper’s Distribution Operations Manager for the Colorado Region can be demanding at times, but regardless of how busy things get, his volunteer work for Big Brother Big Sisters is always a priority. Over the past five years, Stan has forged a lifelong friendship as a “Big” to Jerry with a bond that continues to grow and strengthen over time.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of America is a national organization whose mission is to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth. According to Stan, the kids aren’t the only ones who benefit from this program. “It has been a wonderful experience watching Jerry learn to be responsible and resilient. We have created an amazing bond where I know I have learned just as much as he has,” said Stan.
