BBBS of Greater PGH – A Blessing
Heidi, a mother of six, recently lost her husband and is going blind from a degenerative eye disease. Faced with taking care of six children all by herself and the children reeling from the loss of their father, she looked for something that could help them all through this tough time.
When she discovered Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Greater Pittsburgh, she knew she found the perfect match. For the first time in the organization’s history, five of her six children were matched with a Big mentor in one day.
We captured this story for BBBS for the next campaign to raise awareness about the programs they offer and the difference the volunteers can make in a child’s life.
