With Thanksgiving fast approaching, I want to take this opportunity to share how thankful Kids 'n Kinship is for all of our sponsors, donors, and volunteers who have supported us this year!
There are simply too many to list them all here, but we are so appreciative of each supporter who gave time, goods, or money to help Kids 'n Kinship continue our mission of matching youth with positive role models here in Dakota County!
We had a very busy but successful autumn raising $22,000 from our 2013 Gala and another $6,000 from our 2013 Bowlathon. Many thanks to our sponsors & in-kind donors for the Bowlathon!

137 Kids 'n Kinship Participants and community members bowled that day and had a wonderful time! Our raffle baskets & silent auctions baskets were a huge hit, bringing in $675 for Kids 'n Kinship! We especially enjoyed have the Peeps Mobile there with giveaways for kids and Nicole, Kelley & Amanda's volunteering with us that day!
THANK YOU for your support!
Special thanks to our volunteer mentors who volunteer an hour or two a week to be a friend to a child! Thanks to you, 79 youth currently have someone to look up to, have fun with, and someone who believes in them!
