#ThankfulThursday: Gio & Kris

March 22, 2019

Last Thursday, March 14, 2019 DonCARES of Philadelphia, Inc.  mentor Giovanni and his 12th grade mentee Kris enjoyed dinner at Marathon Grill in Center City.  Giovanni is a astute scholar at Temple University who is also a member a Strong Men Overcoming Obstacles Through Hard Work (Temple Section).  Giovanni's mentee Kris is a motivated senior at The U School in North Philadelphia, and grew up a few blocks away from Temple University. 


As the first students matched during the 2018-2019 school-year, Giovanni and his mentee Kris have been matched since late September. During their weekly meetings, the two scholars work on homework assignments, Kris's senior multi-disciplinary project, and work on college admissions essays.
