Donna's Ditties: August 2019
Welcome to the new school year! We are excited to be working with you again!
As we hear from counselors regarding mentoring schedules we will contact you with possible mentoring times. It sometimes takes a couple weeks for kid schedules to be set so thank you for your patience while we get the information we need.
SAVE THE DATE: October 9th, 5:30pm-7:30pm gathering for all mentors at Nampa Civic Center to celebrate our 20 years of service to our communities.
Mentors, if you haven't already turned in your hours, we would love to have your mentoring hours for the Spring semester (and Fall if you haven’t turned them in yet). You can turn them in online HERE , email them to us, or if you want to turn them in on paper, we can mail you a log sheet. Your hours are so important to our organization, allowing us to show funders the commitment our engaged volunteers give each year. We so appreciate your help with this!
Please continue to reach out to those you know and invite them to join us in mentoring our local youth. We always have outstanding requests in all districts (Caldwell, Homedale, Nampa, Parma, and Vallivue) so if you know someone who might enjoy sharing what they know with a child, please contact us!
Our annual board fundraising Bowl-a-Thon will be Saturday, September 21, 2019 1:00-4:00 at Nampa Bowl. Come for the Fun! Bowl for the Kids! All proceeds to benefit kids in The Mentoring Network Inc. How you can help: Form a Team—teams consist of 5 players. Each person on the team will work to collect $100 or more allowing each team to contribute at least $500. To help teams reach their goal, we have 2 raffle items. There will be 2 winners drawn on the day of the Bowl-a-Thon (a year of coffee from The Human Bean or 2 alpine day lift tickets from Bogus Basin). Tickets are $10 each and can be sold right away to help teams meet their goal. Buyers do not have to be present at the Bowl-a-Thon to win the pre-raffle item. Sponsor—sponsors have an opportunity to share how you care for the community as we let people know, through social media, about your support.
