Show Pine River kindergartner you care


It’s Valentine’s Day! Show a child you care by becoming a mentor. Kinship Partners has children waiting right here in the Pequot Lakes and Pine River-Backus school districts.

Meet Ellie, a kindergarten student from Pine River. She is 5 years old and hopes to find someone who enjoys trips to the park, baking and vanilla ice cream like she does.

Mom describes Ellie as a big helper around the house with an outgoing personality and a love for art and being outdoors.
