It is so hard to believe that in a few days the kids will be going back to school! Where did the summer go?
It seems we all are super busy in the summertime around here. There is just so much to fit in while we have nice weather. I know there are a lot of things that I have been putting off until fall and I am ready to tackle some of those activities.
Have you been thinking about volunteering for Kinship Partners but were waiting for the summer to wind down? If so, we are ready for you! We always receive many referrals at the beginning of the school year for new kids to be added to our program. And of course, we always have a number of kids on our waiting list.
The great thing about being a Kinship Partner is that the activities you do with your partner are everyday activities. Maybe you like to do woodworking, your junior partner could join you. If you like to sew or work on crafts, you can share your knowledge with your partner. There is no better gift that you can give to a young person than to spark their interests.
The interests of the kids on our waiting list are varied. Chances are there is a child waiting who has similar interests as your. Please call us today to learn more about our program and the children on our waiting list. In Brainerd, call 829-4606, in Cuyuna Country, call 546-7308 and in Lake Country, call 568-4015.
