Match of the Year
When Aimee Mangan is asked about her experience of being a Big Sister she responds with, “It is impactful, needed, easy, and fun. “ Aimee has been matched with her Little Sister Teyha since 2011. During that time Aimee and Teyha have participated in a wide range of activities with one goal in mind, spending time together. The pair’s outings have including baking, hiking, roller-skating, attending plays, surfing, visiting the Monterey Bay Aquarium, and watching Giants and Warriors games through donated tickets. These adventures provide a backdrop for Teyha to experience new things, share thoughts, ask questions, and receive encouragement from a caring adult role model.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Santa Cruz County matches children with volunteer mentors. We call this “making a match.” We invite you to Make A Match. $3,500 is the cost to match a child and fund ongoing professional mentoring support for one year.
Your Make A Match gift contributes to this goal.
