Meghan’s Perfect Match: Another Big Brothers Big Sisters Success


02.12.19
IN Advertising

Before Meghan Hamm became the digital strategist at Hirons, she was working at her first job after college and wanted to get involved in some type of volunteerism. Her company at the time was very supportive of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana (BBBSCI), so Meghan decided to try it out. That was 6½ years ago, and she’s still involved.

“My favorite part about joining is definitely my Little,” says Meghan. “We have gotten super close over the years, and it has been an amazing experience to watch her grow. She was a shy 10-year-old getting ready to go into fourth grade when we first were matched, and now she’s 17, a star on the varsity soccer team, starting to look at colleges and just got her driver’s license!”

Over the years, Meghan has given her Little advice and taught her a lot about life. But this is not a one-way relationship.

“She has absolutely made me more appreciative and at the same time made me proud. She’s not afraid to try new things, which I love,” says Meghan. “Not to mention, she keeps me hip.”

Meghan tries to be a good role model and give her Little experiences she may not otherwise have.

“We have done so much together,” says Meghan. “Concerts, bowling, go-karting, cooking, crafting, skating, bike riding, movies, paddle boating, scavenger hunts, manicures, applying for jobs, Pacer games, swimming with dolphins and attending shows and museums. We have a lot of great memories together.”

More than 900 kids in Central Indiana are waiting to be placed with a Big. Meghan emphasizes it doesn’t take a lot to make a big impact.

“BBBSCI does a great job matching Bigs with Littles,” says Meghan. “It is a lot of fun, and I highly recommend checking it out.”

Take it from Meghan: If you have the volunteer bug, look no further than BBBSCI.

If you are interested in joining or learning more about the program, you should check out bebigforkids.org. If you aren’t able to donate your time, BBBSCI also hosts a lot of fun events throughout the year to help raise monetary donations. The next one is Bowl For Kids’ Sake on Wednesday, April 24, at Woodland Bowl.

This concludes Hirons’ Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana blog series. We hope we inspired you to get out of your comfort zone and volunteer!
