Donna's Ditties: September 2019
We have 66% of our matches up and running again. If you haven’t heard from us, feel free to reach out and contact us and we’ll let you know the status. It takes time for us to locate youth as many change schools and districts over the summer. Thank you for your patience while we get the information we need.
If you haven’t RSVP’d: October 9th, 5:30pm-7:30pm is the gathering for all mentors at Nampa Civic Center to celebrate our 20 years of service to our communities. Outdoors at the Nampa Civic Center Calliope Garden (will be indoors if weather is not cooperative) 311 3rd Street South October 9th from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Drop in if you can’t stay for the whole event! We want to see you! Come spend time with other mentors as you start the new school year. Share stories and mentoring ideas! Know someone who should be mentoring? Please let us know they are coming then bring them along!
Mentors, if you haven't already turned in your hours, we would love to have your mentoring hours for last Spring semester (and last 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 was Saturday, September 21, 2019 1:00-4:00 at Nampa Bowl. We had 14 teams this year! It was so fun to spend time with the teams who had come out to support the kids. A HUGE thank you to our sponsors who were willing to invest in the lives of our local youth!
