Hezron (Little) and Garret (Big)

Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Central Piedmont is pleased to share Hezron and Garret They were matched in October 2021 in our site based program. They met for the first time in The Fall Festival and immediately they got along very well. Hezron was shy at first, but Garret earned his trust, and they have become inseparable since then. Garret and Hezron met during our afterschool program. They went to the public library where Garret helped him improve his reading skills. They went to local parks where they played basketball and football together. This match transferred to our community based program because it worked better for their schedules. They have attended the grasshopper baseball games together, they went to dinner, watched movies and played video games. Hezron and Garret’s relationship is growing stronger. They both had mentioned that they love each other. 

Garret said: “It’s a dream come true be his Big Brother. My favorite memory is when Hezron gave me a greeting card for my birthday.” Garret is Hezron’s mentor in all areas. He helps him with his school classes. They are both passionate about sports, so they spend a lot of time playing together. Hezron’s mother told to me that they consider Garret to be a part of their family. Mom showed Hezron’s report card to Garret, and if he has a problem at school Garret advises or tutors him so he stays focused in school. Hezron sees Garret as his Big Brother, he admires, and respects him.
