Match of the Month:
Big Sister Joan with her
Little Sister Maddy
Joan and Maddy are a very unique match at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Halton. Maddy is Joan’s second Little Sister match. Her first was with Jessie, Maddy’s older sister. When Jessie graduated from the program, being matched with Maddy seemed like such a perfect fit as she had known Maddy for most of her life. Joan and Maddy have been matched for almost 3 years and enjoy a variety of activities including; watching movies, going out for dinner, bowling, and attending agency group events. Since being matched, Joan continues to amazing us! Despite moving more than 2 hours away, she still makes the time (and the trek!) to see Maddy every other week for a fun-filled visit. Congratulations to you both on being May’s Match of the Month!
The Millers* family (*they are too modest to share their real name) very generously initiated a three-year Matching Challenge, offering to match, dollar for dollar, new donations up to the amount of $10,000.
The campaign kicked off in 2015 and will run until December 2017. We are extremely excited to announce that in year 2 of the campaign, a second $10,000 has been raised in support of our one-to-one Big Brother Big Sister mentoring program. We thank the generosity of our supporters. These funds will help 25 children to become matched with a volunteer Big Brother Big Sister of their very own.
Year three of the campaign will kick off on January 1, 2017. Call Susan Coyne at (905) 339-2355 ext. 236 for more details.
Silver Sherpa will be making a $25 donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Halton for every referral.
