The holidays are upon us and people are getting the holiday spirit. Have you thought of becoming a Kinship Partner in the new year? All we ask is that you spend a few hours a week with a child. We have kids on our waiting list right now with many different interests, maybe one that is right for you.
Do you like to swim? Macy is a 6-year-old girl in Kindergarten who lives with a single mother and is the middle child in the family. Macy would like a partner to teach her to swim. Macy is a real sweet girl who describes herself as quiet but says sometimes she never stops talking! She loves to color and would be a fun child to do things with. Cory is Macy's older brother and he is 8 years old and in 2nd grade. Cory is outgoing and personable. He likes computers and sports. Cory is active and would like a partner to take him snowmobiling.
Another little boy on the waiting list is Barry. He is 6 years old and in first grade. Barry lives with his mother and younger sister. They just moved to the area and he does not see his father. Barry likes to take things apart and see how they work. He would like to be matched with a man who is handy at fixing things and could teach him.
If you are interested in any of these kids or want to find out about others please call Kinship Partners today. In Brainerd 829-4606, Crosby 546-7308 and in Pequot Lakes 568-4015.
