Hey! What are you doing today — making cookies, shoveling snow, or in the summer, swimming, bike riding, going for an ice cream cone, or something you hadn’t thought of, like playing table games, hide ‘n seek, or going down the water slide at one of our great places in the Brainerd area? (By the way, the water slides are free with Kinship partners.) I’ve gotten to do all of the above plus more with my Kinship partner, stuff we both like to do because of the wonderful and supportive Kinship staff that knows how to pair you up with a child who likes to do the same things. My husband loves to hunt, fish, etc. and so does his junior partner. How great is that?
Both my husband and I have been thrilled to watch our first partners grow up into mature adults. Yes, we both have another one now, doing the fun things we like to do. No matter if you’re a young person, mom and dad with a family, or a grandma and grandpa, as we are, won’t you consider becoming a Kinship partner with one of the many kids on the waiting list? It will definitely be worth your couple of hours a week for both you and your junior partner. Check out the website at www.kinshippartners.org or call 218-829-4606 in the Brainerd area. Thank you!
