Lunch Buddy Celebration
Youth Horizons staff joined Eastminster Presbyterian Church Mentors and Washington Elementary School officials on May 19 to celebrate student Proteges in an inaugural “Lunch Buddy” program. The celebration featured playtime, banjo music, singing, ice cream, gift bags and more. Washington counselor Maggie Onstott smiled as students enjoyed the celebration, engaged with their Mentors and beamed.
“Witnessing their faces light up when see their Lunch Buddy is a clear indicator of the impact the Mentors are having.” Onstott said.
Some Mentors will continue meeting through summer break and all are scheduled to resume next school year.
