Lakes Area Kinship - Did you know?

Did you know…

…our Lakes Area Kinship Program currently has 35 matches! That means 70 lives are positively impacted and enriched by mentorship in our community!

The Lakes Area Kinship Program unites one caring adult volunteer with a child in our community between the ages of 5 - 16 based on similar likes and dislikes, common interests, hobbies, and personalities. Once matched, the pair establishes a relationship through spending quality time together, attending our L.A.K.E. (Lakes Area Kinship Events), and giving back to our community by volunteering. Mentors help teach children how to be healthy, contributing, and successful members of society. Children with mentors are 78% more likely to volunteer within their communities as adults.

Our Kinship program does not receive funding from grants but relies solely on sponsorships and donations from our very generous and giving local philanthropists and businesses. We are always striving to find ways to eliminate any costs for the mentors, to sustain our current day to day obligations, and to keep our office running effectively and efficiently.

We would be so grateful if you would please consider giving to Kinship today. Your donation would help us continue with our efforts to host mentoring events, to offer gift cards for meals and treats for mentoring outings, and to provide our mentees with opportunities that they may not otherwise have.

Thank you for your ongoing support!

Best Regards,

Ashlie Seifert, Kinship Coordinator
