Congrats Michelle & Claire on Match Of The Year 2014

“It is our honor and privilege to recognize the significance of Michelle and Claire as the Fifth Annual Big Brothers Big Sistersʼ Match of the Year. All of our volunteers and families invest so much that it was difficult to select one match in particular. However, Michelle’s and Claire’s relationship over the years has been marked by consistency and significant growth. We celebrate them and the other mentors in our program.”
