Meet our January Match of the Month!

Big Sister Meghan and Little Sister Vada, a 2nd grader at Hillview Elementary, have been matched in our Community-Based Program since March of 2018. They love every minute they get to spend with each other! Meghan said about their match, "She is the happiest little girl. We love to go shopping, go out to eat, and go bowling. We went to Build a Bear around Christmas time and she loved it! She feels like family to me and I'm so happy this program brought us together." They are the best of friends! They will be celebrating their one year anniversary soon and are both excited to continue their friendship with each other.
