Companions for Children was at Oak Park Wednesday afternoon from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. serving cheeseburgers, chips, a cookie and water for patrons driving through to raise funds for the organization.

The fundraiser was originally planned for Tuesday but the rainy weather prompted the event to be postponed a day.

Heather Cymbaluk, director of Companions for Children, and several board of directors’ members volunteered for the group’s annual summer fundraiser. Event sponsors included Contour Field Consultants, First International Bank and Trust and Border States Electric.

About 500 meals were served, Cymbaluk said, and all funds raised go to support local youth mentoring programs. Companions for Children serves Minot and a 15-mile radius.

Currently Companions for Children is looking for mentors for the 2022-2023 school year, said Cymbaluk, Companions for Children will recruit, screen, train and provide support for those interested. Applicants who would like to be mentors can reach out to companionsforchildren.org
