Kinship of Pella is no more, or at least that name. The local organization committed to helping children find mentors has officially changed its name to JUMP, or Journey Up Mentoring of Pella for Kids. Jill McKinstry director of JUMP for Kids tells KNIA/KRLS News that she hopes the exposure that the renaming has provided will prompt people to volunteer to be mentors. The name change will officially take effect on January first, and shouldn’t effect the organizations ongoing mentorship programs.
