Match of the Month:

"The Works" Match of the Month Contest -
Big Sister Veronica and Little Sister Sylise

Veronica and Sylise have been matched for 6 months! The two of them instantly bonded over their love for dogs, and if you were to ask Sylise’s mom she would say they were “two peas in a pod.” Veronica and Sylise get together once every 1-2 weeks and have fun with whatever activity they choose. As long as the two of them get the chance to talk and laugh, they’re sure to have a great time! Some of their favorite activities so far have included going to the dog park, making homemade pizza, mini golfing and watching sports games. Over the Winter Veronica hopes to teach Sylise how to snowboard, and in turn Sylise plans on helping Veronica with her drawing and painting skills. 

Veronica is an incredible mentor to Sylise and focuses their time together on talking and doing every day activities. If you were to ask Veronica what she loves most about getting to be Sylise’s Big Sister, she would say that her favorite part is how much they laugh and how much fun they have together.

Congratulations to you our winning Match of the Month for October!  

Each winning match will receive a Dinner for Two pass which includes Two Gourmet Worksburgers and Two Milkshakes (a $40 value) to celebrate together at "The Works" Oakville Location.

Matching Challenge Success

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.
