Lakes Area Kinship of LCRC improves lives by helping establish quality relationships between youth ages 5 to 16 and caring adult volunteers for the purpose of promoting stability, support, friendship, and community. To honor National Mentoring Month in January we held our first 30 Mentors in 30 Days campaign with the hope of creating a waiting list of mentors instead of maintaining a waiting list of children. Success! We gained 10 new mentors who will be matched with children who have been waiting for months; and, we also conveyed more awareness of the Kinship Program. Also, in January we were able to host our 2nd Annual Tubing Party at Detroit Mountain. Sponsorship of this event was graciously provided for by the Detroit Lakes Breakfast Rotary and Detroit Mountain.
We continue efforts to recruit mentors as the undeniable need for volunteers continues to grow. It is a minimal commitment for an invaluable and immeasurable experience for both the children and adults who participate.
