Match of the Month Skyler and Michael matched for one year.
Michael and Skyler have been matched for
one year and their friendship continues to grow with each outing! The two of
them get together every week, and enjoy spending their time doing everyday activities.
Whether it’s cleaning out Michael’s car, cooking and baking together or pulling
out weeds from the garden, they always have a great time! However, their
outings aren’t always hard work; Michael and Skyler love to celebrate their
achievements with bonfires, playing laser tag, playing sports and going to Group
Michael is a great mentor and strongly puts
a focus on bonding with Skyler and teaching him new skills. Michael loves being
a part of Skyler’s life and learning about his interests, friends and family.
If you were to ask Michael what he loves most about getting to be Skyler’s big
brother, he would say that his favorite part is getting to watch Skyler step
outside of his comfort zone by trying new things and having fun!
Last year, The Millers* family (*they are too modest to share their real name) very generously initiated a Matching Challenge, offering to match, dollar for dollar, new donations up to the amount of $10,000. These funds were to enable the agency to increase our reach and match more children with a positive adult role model. This decision struck a chord in the community and we pleased to say that we were able to raise $10,000 from generous community support that was matched by the Millers for a total of $20,000. This assisted us with matching 35 children with their own Big Brother or Big Sister mentor!
To quote Mrs. Miller, a second year of challenge is a great way to ring in the 2016. We therefore are pleased to announce that the Millers have committed extending their matching challenge for a second year. If you want to join the Milers and help find us match even more children this year, than please join our matching challenge today. Together, we can unlock a child’s true potential creating a future where anything is possible
Please join the Millers in reaching our goal of $10,000. You can make your donation at - Mentoring Matching Challenge
