Big things happen in little ways every day for thousands of children across the Twin Cities.
It’s the Little Brother whose Big Brother encourages him to achieve his dreams. It’s the Big Sister who says time with her Little Sister is the best part of her week. It’s the Supporter who knows his contribution is making life-changing friendships happen.
“Thanks to Deirdre’s help, I’m now on track to graduate college with great experiences, a high GPA and zero debt,” Little Sister Haley
A decade ago, Haley was a curly-haired girl with big brown eyes and big dreams. But resources were scarce and the neighborhood rough, so Haley was just the kind of kid who could really use a Big Sister to guide her. Enter Big Sister Deirdre, who recognized Haley’s potential and put a strong emphasis on hard work and strong values. Today, Deirdre is “a lifelong sister, mentor and friend” and Haley is preparing to graduate from Gustavus Adolphus College and pursue her first job at Goldman Sachs.
