It's Spring and time for some Spring cleaning. Many people are back to work or about to finish school and start their career or a new career. Having the right mentor can help in every way. If you are in

school, you are likely finding a mentor relationship with a professor or faculty member and making friends with a classmate. These relationships can go a long way in the future, so do not lose touch with these people.

As a part-time faculty member in a professional program at a community college, I see this a lot. I serve as a mentor through my professional association as well, but I find that creating a relationship and a friendship first makes for a better mentor/protege experience.

Here at the Foundation, we are working on some new ways to help people develop the best mentor relationship, and we are here to help. As we build our Foundation, and clean our house, we are still here for you. If you need help or inspiration, please reach out to us. We have a great network and are happy to help.

If you would like to serve as a mentor or join our network, please contact us. We would love to hear from you.

Good luck with your Spring cleaning!

For those of you experiencing this terrible winter storm, especially those without power, water, or supplies, we pray and hope you find safety and warmth. Please call 211 or visit to find supplies and warming stations.

If you do have power, warmth, water, please help your neighbors. That is what Wendi would have done.

With Peace

EXCITING NEWS! The Wendi Atwood Rogers Memorial Fund is becoming "The Wendi Atwood Rogers Foundation". As we have said all along, "With Wendi's Help, we create change!" We have put in some hard work over the past four years, and now we are excited about what our future holds for helping others through community efforts, mentorship and grants.

Since we cannot meet in person to build mentorship or host a fund raiser, we looked to granting money and growing our cause. Because of a generous donor, we were honored to make several donations.

We have donated $2,500 to the Dallas Education Foundation to assist with providing online education to students who do not have Internet access. Many students are living in temporary housing or homeless, and COVID19 is making it harder for these students to finish their high school education.

We also donated $500 to Leadership Forward in Dallas, Texas. This program works with two high schools in Dallas with at risk students by matching students with mentors. Mentors help students finish their high school education and start the next chapter in their lives whether it be technical school or college.

Last, because of the economic situation, there is a much greater need for food, and we cannot ignore that in our community or yours. We have given $500 to the North Texas Food Bank where they are able to stretch $1 far and feed a lot of families.

If you are considering giving for the holidays, consider areas of need in your community. Is it a food bank, is it a homeless shelter, or maybe a program for the elderly. Next year, once we our 501(c)(3) application is granted, we hope you will consider donating to us.
