Pequot Lakes siblings waiting for mentors


A curious thing happened when Kinship Partners attempted to recruit 50 new mentors for its program during January’s National Mentoring Month.

Indeed, mentors came forward. Kinship Partners would like to thank the 24 heroes who have volunteered to mentor children throughout Crow Wing and southern Cass counties and the Staples/Motley area.

Kinship will strive to hit its goal of bringing at least another 25 mentors into the program over the next couple months.
