There is a child in our community who needs your friendship.


Teachers enjoy Katie and she has really loved 4th grade. Even though she has had a tough time learning to read, it’s her favorite subject. She knows that practice makes perfect.

Spring is here, the weather is nice enough to jump-rope outside and Katie is happy about that. She also likes to play board games with her family.

Katie is looking forward to having a mentor; she would like to bake, sew and do crafts, but most of all she’d like someone to talk to. Katie also requests someone who likes to laugh a lot.

Can you imagine yourself spending time with a 10-year old whose nickname is “snuggle-bug” and likes chocolate chip cookies? Be Katie’s mentor, she’s waiting for you.

However, Chris needs a partner…
