(KSL News) -- Today the Big Brothers, Big Sisters organization planted trees as a gift to their "Make A Difference" award winner. The award goes to Gordon B. Hinckley, president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who himself is a tree-lover.

The organization is celebrating 25 years of successfully mentoring children in need.

President Gordon B. Hinckley, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints: "I want to congratulate this organization, Big Brothers, Big Sisters for the tremendous good that you do. It's been said that no man stands so tall as when he stoops to help a boy."

The Big-Brothers, Big-Sisters program has been the state's preeminent youth service organization, logging over 120 thousand hours of volunteer time last year.
