Matches come out to support the program that introduced them in Androscoggin County.
Watch the February 7th interview with our Executive Director Gwendolyn Hudson!
"When Assistant Store Manager Jake Schwarz asked Gonzales if he would help with the annual fundraiser, his response was "Yes, tie me up."
“Our core model of building bridges in communities by connecting one adult with one child and supporting that match at every stage is the same, but the urgency is greater than ever. We want people to stand with us. Help us defend every child’s potential and our role as adults in helping children achieve their best possible futures.” Gwendolyn Hudson, Executive Director
“It's about the time spent. Just 2 to 5 hours a week, you can make a huge difference in the life of a child." Mae Slevinsky, Program Supervisor
“Every day a child facing adversity waits for a positive, consistent and caring mentor in their life is a risk to their ability to reach their greatest potential. A few hours a week can change the trajectory of a child’s life.” BBBSMM Community-Based Manager Renee Igo
“This generous gift will directly support local children facing adversity by matching them with caring, responsible adults and teens who, through positive 1-to-1 mentoring, help them reach their greatest potential." BBBSMM Executive Director Gwendolyn Hudson
