Terry and Shyreek have been a match since February 2011 through Big Brothers Big Sister–a United Way funded agency. They meet several times a month and do a variety of activities like going to the movies, monster truck rallies, trips to Barnes and Noble, air shows, Wet and Wild and so many more. Terry is willing to try most anything that Shyreek requests.
Terry and Shyreek’s mom work together as a team and she can go to Terry with any needs. Shyreek’s mother raves about Terry. She has described their relationship with a note saying “The best match EVER. Thanks A LOT. We could NOT ASK FOR ANYTHING BETTER.”
Shyreek is treated as a member of Terry’s family and has gone on trips to the mountain house. Terry even brought Shyreek along to adopt their dogTilley (photographed above).
In Terry, Shyreek has someone one who will listen to him and guide him unconditionally. Shyreek looks forward to his time with Terry and recently said that part of what he likes about Terry is that he knows that Terry cares about him and does nice things for him.
Without your support of United Way, agencies like Big Brothers Big Sisters wouldn’t be able to create great matches like Terry and Shyreek. Whether you can give $1 a week or $10 a week, EVERY DOLLAR MATTERS!
