Our buddies at Thurston Woods are wonderful mentors for our little ones in kindness and in reading. It came as no surprise that the mentors asked their teachers to add an extra service component to our Reading Buddies day in November. In addition to reading, snacks, and art this time we also packed care kits for the individuals we serve through St. Vincent de Paul. We contacted our lead, Ms. Ladonna, at SVDP to see what the diners needed. We collected the items and then our big and little buddies packed the bags together. The care kits were handed out over Thanksgiving. We are really looking forward to seeing our buddies again in 2018!
