Mentors can teach many skills to the students they work with. One important one is the ability to say THANK YOU. With the help of community groups, kids will be able to say thank you to their mentors a little more easily this year.
The program has received donations of scrapbook supplies and volunteer groups have been busy creating cards that will be given to schools. Schools will then give the blank thank you cards to students to write a short note or draw a picture to give to their mentor.
We have been blessed with hundreds of cards this year, but are always in need of more. If you are a card maker and would like to lend your talents to a good cause or if you have supplies that are filling up your closet, we can take those as well! In addition to thank you cards, we are in need of 40-50 birthday cards that will be sent to older adults in the Better Together program. Please drop any donation off at LSS, 705 E 41st Street, Suite 220.
