Make it Count Day – Highlights!

May 1st was Kids Hope USA’s first annual, “Make It Count Day!” where Directors from all over the country shared how many mentor-student relationships they had within their program. The tally continues to escalate, but we thought we’d highlight some of these great Directors!

Are you a Director and you haven’t had a chance to share your “Make it Count” Number? There is still time! Share your photo and email your number to your Kids Hope USA Program Support Representative!¬†
