I have been a Big Sister since 2007. My "Little" Sister is now 18. I have been changed by this organization and this program. I know that my little has as well. I have been able to be with her through boyfriends, break ups, report cards, and family struggle. I know that if this program wouldn't have matched us and her family with other Big Sisters the outcomes would not have been the same. This is a life changing program that MUST be supported and continued. Athens Ohio doesn't have any other programs like this! PLEASE take time to give any amount you can. Every little bit helps!
I am proud to say Tosh will be graduating from High School this May!! She has a bright future ahead!!!
