Meet the Miller Family
The Millers* family (*they are too modest to share their real name) have lived in Oakville for many years and wanted to give back to the community. They developed our new Matching Challenge and committed to double every dollar raised during the campaign to match a child with a mentor. The Millers who have children of their own understand the need for mentorship and the need to fast track the number of children on our waiting list.
“Being a parent I truly see the struggle young children face today with technology, bullying and low self-esteem, every child should have someone to look up too or turn to for advice,” said Mrs. Miller. The generosity of the Millers will help Big Brothers Big Sister of Halton reach our goal of connecting 117 children with a positive role model.
Please join the Millers in reaching our goal of $10,000. You can make your donation at - Mentoring Matching Challenge
