amazing friends and role models to the children at Stoney Creek Community School. Whether spend your time together playing
sports, board games, doing crafts or just hanging out on the playground Big Brothers is grateful for your dedication to your Little
Buddies and to our community. Your mentoring has a direct impact on the children in our programs, and to the future of our
society as a whole. Children with mentors go on to have better relationships with their peers and adults, do better in school, gain
higher self-confidence and eventually give back to the community when they are grown. Thanks to you, these children will have
the tools they need to reach their full potential. It has been an incredible pleasure working with you this year. Thank you for
volunteering!
