Child in Need: Jenny ready to make a new friend with a mentor


Jenny ready to make a new friend with a mentor

Jenny is an 11-year-old in the Brainerd area waiting to be matched with a Kinship Partner. She lives with her mom and a younger brother and younger sister. Jenny has contact with her dad usually once a year.

Although shy at first, Jenna is a talkative once you get to know her and makes friends easily. She is a happy, well-mannered, sweet young lady. Jenna loves school and her favorite subjects are gym, music and computer. Outside of school she likes singing, dancing, bowling, swimming, cooking and baking, to name a few. Jenna’s Kinship Partner will definitely have some fun and make a new friend to do a variety of things with.

Kinship Partners serves families in Crow Wing County, southern Cass County and the Staples/Motley area by providing positive role models to youth from the ages of 5 to 14. We have offices in Brainerd, Pequot Lakes, Crosby and Staples.

I've worked at the Brainerd Dispatch with various duties since Dec. 7, 1983. Starting off as an Ad Designer and currently Director of Audience Development. The Dispatch has been an interesting and challenging place to work. I'm fortunate to have made many friends, both co-workers and customers.
