As in past years, The MENTOR Network and its partners are celebrating the holidays by giving back to their communities. Programs across the country have reached out to provide food, gifts and a helping hand to make the season brighter.
For the third holiday season in a row, staff and individuals served by REM Iowa participated in a community Thanksgiving dinner held by a nonprofit organization that provides shelter and other services to individuals experiencing homelessness.
On November 14, The MENTOR Network held its 14th Annual Ripple of Hope Awards ceremony. This year’s award recipients included ten staff and Mentors from across the Network selected from nearly 300 nominations.
