Connect with K’nex

ConnectConnecting with K’nex is a night of playing K’nex, Roominates, Gravity Maze and more fun games. The purpose of this night is to give potential volunteers the opportunity to “connect” with Littles that are ready to be matched but do not have a Big currently. Take this time to “try out” being a Big…do you like it, do you have time for it, can you make a difference? In addition, it provides an extra activity for our current matches to participate in for the evening. All unmatched Littles, matched Bigs and Littles, and potential volunteers are welcome to attend.
