Cheryl & Tone

    Montgomery County, PA

Originally matched in our School-Based program, Big Sister Cheryl met Little Sister Tone in 2008. Three years later, the matched transitioned to our Community-Based program. The match shares an interest in cooking and trying new food together. As Tone grows up, she and Cheryl just get closer.

Despite trouble at school, Tone has learned to stay calm in any situation. Since the match has been together for nearly eight years, Tone confides in Cheryl and truly values the advice she received.

“Cheryl is the first person I call with a problem. I want to be like her when I get older”

Cheryl also feels the impact of their strong relationship and knows the match has benefitted them both. Cheryl can’t imagine what her life would be without Tone. Tone understands how important it is to focus on school to achieve goals, thanks to hear relationship with Cheryl.

Your support helps us create life-changing matches for both children and their mentors.
