Today we bring you our second installment of our summer series! In case you missed it, read about family picnics and reunions, posted on Monday.
Did you think we were celebrating summer this week? Just like local retailers who have all of the shiny school supplies ready for purchase, we are getting ready for back to school at LSS Mentoring Services. We know that there are hundreds of kids who will return to school in a matter of weeks hoping they have a mentor this year. We do not want to let them down. So, we will rally together to raise awareness of this important need!This year, we will celebrate mentoring at our first ever Everyday Heroes Unite event. It will be on Tuesday, August 5 from 8-9 AM at Lincoln High School. The event will feature short presentations, videos, breakfast and prizes as the community rallies together to support kids who need mentors. Anyone is welcome to attend – so that means you! Please RSVP by filling out the form at the bottom of this post!
Football was also mentioned in the title. There is a tie to this event! Dr. Tom Osborne, legendary coach of the University of Nebraska football team and co-founder of the TeamMates Mentoring Program, has agreed to do a video address at this event. AND, that is not all! One person who attends will be the lucky winner of two tickets to the Minnesota Vikings game on August 16.
So, while this post is about what we are doing this summer, we hope that you are setting your eyes on August 5 and becoming an Everyday Hero to a local student. Please join us.
