Kinship of Martin Co. receives blessing

To the Editor:

We were so blessed this Christmas season in so many ways by those in our community. One amazing gift (no pun intended) we were given was the ability to partner with Grace Lutheran and their Star Tree Program.

Kinship was able to nominate some of our families to receive gifts through their annual giving efforts. Stars are placed on the tree in their church with ages and genders of individuals, and then church members and others are able to grab a star and shop for someone while they are doing their own gift shopping. In doing so, our families were able to receive gifts for their families without any kind of financial burden or additional stress to them.

As a mentoring program, we rely so heavily on the generosity and support of those in our community — and that support goes far beyond just our mentors and financial supporters. We love being able to form relationships with other organizations that enable us to best use our resources to serve our mentors, mentees, and families. Grace helped us do that this year. We are so thankful.

Executive Director, Kinship of Martin County
