This week we celebrated our 1 year anniversary of our FIRST mentoring match. We are thrilled to hear about all the wonderful things Vicky and Keara have done together this year and even more excited that they will be continuing to participate in the program for another year!
We have seen an increase in mentor applications..this week alone we have received 5 NEW mentor applications, that is 6 in the past two weeks. WOAH!
Since our waiting list is very short for youth enrollments and we have mentors who are anxious to get started we are amping up our outreach efforts to reach families. This weekend we will be at Santa Day in Morris handing out treat bags and making sure program information is accessible to families. Please help us spread the word to make sure that the families in our community know that mentoring is a resource that is available to them and their children.
As we wrap up the end of the year we are continuing to sell custom engraved bricks for our community pation. Thank you to Thrifty White Pharmacy and the Morris Eagles for generously supporting this project and purchasing bricks this week! If you haven't had the chance to place your order, the order forms are still available at www.rusckinship.org.
We always have to be looking ahead which is why we are working on our next big fundraising event. Please mark your calendars and let us know if you would like to register for a chance to win the title of the "Best Hotdish in Stevens County"!
That's enough for now!
Until Next Week,
