This month Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bluegrass is celebrating National Mentoring Month, Amber Philpott has the story of a special match three years in the making.
Each week 8-year-old Timothy and his big brother Troy Howard meet in front of a board game. Today it's a friendly match of Monopoly.
For three years, Timothy and Troy have been a match through Big Brothers Big Sisters. Timothy says there is one thing he loves the most about Troy.
For Troy, volunteering and spending time with Timothy is a great change of pace from his daily work routine, but it's the change he's seen in Timothy that means the most to him.
For these two, a weekly game what ever it is, means another chance to build on their growing friendship.
