Recently, a man stopped by our office to fill out application forms to become a mentor. We met with him this week after the process was complete, to match him with a child.
As we talked he learned about a young boy who lives downtown and doesn’t have a backyard, another who lives with elderly grandparents, two who had recently lost a significant person in their lives and two more that have been waiting over a year.
What would your decision be? Who would you choose?
We currently have 36 children on our waiting list in the Brainerd lakes area, 25 of them are boys. These are incredible kids, living in our towns and desiring to be a part of your world.
Which child gets a mentor this week? That’s yet to be decided, but when we do there will be 24 boys remaining on the waiting list. Do you have a couple hours a week you would be willing to share? Be a friend, influence a life, be a mentor.
