DSC_0107We have a vibrant partnership with South Elementary School in Jefferson City.  We support South in a variety of ways including: mentoring; teachers supply boxes quarterly; school supplies; purchasing t-shirts for staff and students; work days at the school; lunches for staff appreciation; cards and care packages throughout the year; volunteers for school events; benevolence funds for students in need; money for field trips; end of year picnic for all mentors and mentees, and more.  We are grateful to support such an awesome school. South School Tigers Rule!

The DSC_0170best way we can support is by providing mentors.  Mentors help children live better stories. What an awesome opportunity to help a child live the best story possible.  All it takes is 45 minutes each during the school year.  That’s it.  You talk, play games, go for a walk on the playground or shoot some hoops.  You can eat lunch with them or just visit.  45 minutes.  A lifetime of impact.
