MENTORING MAGIC

from page 37

to host the event annually.
Recently other synagogues have
expressed an interest in sponsoring
an activity as well. "These group
activities help make a mentor pro-
gram stronger because it allows for
the mentors and the kids to get to
know one another better. It also
shows the kids that they are not
alone," Greenstein said.
Most of the boys in the program
have never seen their fathers and lack
a male role model. Many of the_ girls
have low self-esteem, depression or
are at-risk of making poor choices
later in life.

JFS social workers train the volun-
teers and support them throughout
the relationship with their kids.
Support also is offered to the parents
and guardians of the children, such
as parenting classes and counseling.
The CONNECT program has 12
mentor-youth matches, but more
mentors are needed.
For more information on CON-
NECT and other volunteer programs
with Southfield-based Jewish Family
Service, contact Michelle Greenstein
at (248) 559-1500, or by e-mail at

Business Drives -
Warm Homeless

Homeless shelters in Pontiac and
Detroit were the beneficiaries of holiday
drives held by two Jewish-owned busi-
nesses.
Ceresnie & Offen Furs of
Birmingham delivered warm hats, gloves
and mittens collected by employees and
customers to the Coalition on
Temporary Shelter (COTS) in Detroit.
"It's always important to help those in
need," said co-owner Mike Ceresnie.

"The kids in the childcare area were
excited to model their winter wear," said
Beth McKeown, a COTS manager.
Southfield-based LoanGiant.com
donated 200 blankets and employees
donated $700 worth of canned goods as
gestures of support of Grace Centers of
Hope, formerly the Pontiac Rescue
Mission.
"We usually help homeowners, so it
was a wonderful turn of events that
allowed us to help some people 'who
don't have any home at all," said Andy
Jacob, president of the online mortgage
lender.
