One hour, every other week, is all it takes to meet a new friend, brighten a child's day and give back to the community as a volunteer, according to Brendan Bogart, Lincoln Elementary principal.

Consider being a lunch buddy, to eat lunch with a child, play a game, or just visit at that child's school two times a month.

"Being a lunch buddy is one of the easiest and most fulfilling volunteer experiences I think one could have," said Kari VanWakeren, pastor.

The lunch buddy initiative is a program of District 206 Community Education and United Way of Douglas and Pope Counties. Mentors are being matched now.
