Meet Addison, the dancer!

Addison’s three favorite things are dancing, singing, and showing anyone who will watch how much she loves dancing and singing! We found the perfect mentors for her — two musical theatre students at the University of Pittsburgh. Addison couldn’t wait to meet her new friends,  Julia and Juliana. She was excited to have a new audience to show off her moves to and who whooped and cheered her on at every turn. 

The fun didn’t stop after Addison ran out of moves! These new friends spent the Saturday afternoon coloring, telling stories, signing autographs, and “oooing and awwwing” at Addison’s Halloween costume. Everyone left with smiles on their faces and full hearts, looking forward to the next time they get to meet.

The pandemic showed many people what social isolation is really like. It also showed there are many other great ways to connect. That’s why we launched our activity kits. These mailed out packages provide fun activities for our mentors and kids/young adults to do together — virtually.
