CHILD IN NEED: Davis is looking for an older brother to have fun with

January is National Mentoring Month. Our challenge to the Brainerd area is to wipe out our list of kids that are waiting for a Kinship Partner. We currently have over 50 kids on that list. If you have ever considered becoming a Kinship Partner now would be a great time to give us a call!

Who: Davis

Age: 8

Where: Lives in Brainerd

Interests: Likes all sports; but especially football, basketball, bowling, fishing and has a special interest in soccer. He also enjoys drawing, painting, arts, crafts and board games.

Personality: Davis loves to stay active and he is a very smart young man who does well in school. A positive male role model could help Davis experience some of the guy things he is missing out on. He can be a bit shy at first but warms up quickly.

Dreams and Goals: Davis dreams of being a construction worker and build skyscrapers someday but for now he would like a Kinship Partner as his older brother has a Kinship Partner and he sees the fun they share together.

Kinship Partners serves families in Crow Wing and Cass counties by providing positive role models to kids from ages 5 to 14. We have offices in Brainerd, Crosby and Pequot Lakes.
