PIZZA RANCH PARTNERS WITH YOUTH MENTORING

Youth Mentoring at Helping Services for Youth & Families is hoping you are hungry on May 15! This will be a rip roarin’ fun opportunity to enjoy a tasty meal and support area youth!

Plan to place your food order between 4:30-8:30 p.m. from Pizza Ranch in Decorah. Food can be delivered, carry-out, or dine-in. This event is a Community Impact Fundraising Event sponsored by Pizza Ranch. Youth Mentoring will receive 10% of all food sales from 4:30-8:30 p.m. For customers eating at the restaurant, they will be greeted by Youth Mentoring staff and participants.

Kathy Schwartzhoff, Mentoring Coordinator shares, “We are so pleased to be partnering with Pizza Ranch once again. Our very first mentoring event was held at Pizza Ranch 21 years ago. Things have come full-circle. Get your orders in or come in and say ‘Howdy’ to us at Pizza Ranch on May 15.”

All proceeds from this Community Impact Fundraising Event will support upcoming group events hosted by Youth Mentoring. Some of these events involve: a Pets and Vets event in May, attending New Minowa Players show “Mamma Mia” at Decorah High School in June, and going to Lidtke Mill in July.

Youth Mentoring in Allamakee, Howard, and Winneshiek Counties provides an adult mentor who spends a minimum of four hours a month with a youth. Currently, 40 youth are enjoying time with a mentor, and 28 youth are waiting for a mentor.
