Did you ever wonder who benefits from our annual Bowl For Kids’ Sake? That’s easy to answer…just look at our April 2022 Match of the Month. Little Sister Anjella and Big Sister Josie have the honor of being our longest running match for our SMART program at Conrad Weiser School District. BS Josie will be graduating this year, but she’s been matched since 9th grade and matched with LS Anjella since December 2018. The pandemic caused a brief hiatus, so BS Josie and LS Anjella were eager to get back together — and as soon as SMART was back at Conrad Weiser, they match picked up right where they left off.
After BS Josie helps LS Anjella finish her homework, the match often colors or works on a puzzle together. Some of their favorite memories together include playing kickball, Heads Up Seven Up, and bingo. LS Anjella looks up to BS Josie and loves that she can trust her Big with anything. LS Anjella also shared that she’s happy that BS Josie has been her Big for so many years. BS Josie often talks about how much she loves being able to watch LS Anjella grow up over the past few years. BS Josie adores Anjella’s energy and spirit, and looks forward to seeing her each week.
Congratulations, LS Anjella and BS Josie in being named the April 2022 Match of the Month!
