The Baltimore office of National Neighbor to Family recently announced their 2014 Siblings of the Year and the award went to the Williams family of Baltimore City.

Upon notification, the oldest living sibling, Barry Williams said, “All my life…I knew I was blessed. Yes we had/have a mother and father who loved us, but the best gift they gave us all was each other. My brothers and sisters have always been my best friends. He said even on the darkest of days, “We knew we could call on each other. It’s just the way it’s always been. I don’t know where I’d be without my siblings.”

His siblings include: Adrienne Jones, Myron, Warren and Darrin Williams.

National Neighbor to Family deems this family to be a “marvelous example of a family that’s all about family morals and is active in the Baltimore community.

Since 2008, Neighbor to Family has honored a family that exhibited a fantastic sibling bond. The honorees of this year will be presented with the 7th annual Gordon Johnson Award, Sept. 24, as “Baltimore’s Siblings of The Year” at Baltimore’s Best at the Forum Caterers.

Proceeds from this event will go to activities for Baltimore area foster children. There’s also limited sponsorship, and vending opportunities are still available. Contact Donna McCarter for ticket purchases and more information at 410-496-8151 or email: donna.mccarter@neighbortofamily.org.
