Kids are back to school, and at Willow Bend Elementary School, we have an open invitation to bring hope to students who need a little extra attention. For two years, we've partnered with Kids Hope, a student mentoring ministry, to build a strong church-school relationship that has impacted students and staff at Willow Bend. Come be a part of bringing hope to students in Rolling Meadows by becoming a Kids Hope mentor at Willow Bend. It's easy! Show up for one hour a week. Build a relationship with one student you're paired with by playing games, drawing pictures, helping with school work, or just being someone they can talk to. Help us make a difference one church, one school, one student at a time. For more information, go to kidshopeusa.org or call Don Kunz at 224-578-6152.
