Make new friends, but keep the old! Lindsay Lohan started a new set of community service hours on Wednesday, May 13, at the Duffield Children’s Center in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, where there was a familiar face waiting for her. 

NBC4 New York reporter Melissa Russo tweeted a shot of Lohan, 28, posing with a little boy named Donovan Illery, whom the star met on a previous community service stint last year. 

“Lindsay Lohan reports for community service in Brooklyn. Poses w 5 yr old Donovan Illery @ child care center,” Russo captioned the photo

It turns out that Donovan was featured at the same daycare center on the Parent Trap actress’ self-titled Oprah Winfrey show back in 2014, when he was just 3 years old. 

During the segment, Lohan helped Donovan, who had speech delays, to articulate his feelings. 

“I have a soft spot for him. He was just really sweet,” Lohan said on the show. At the time she was serving hours for shoplifting. 

Lohan is currently serving community service as a result of her 2012 reckless-driving charges in Los Angeles. According to the New York Daily News, she has 125 hours to complete by May 28. 

On Wednesday, Lohan took to Twitter to give the daycare center a shout-out, writing, “So happy to be finally helping out all the kids at @WeAreBCS – I just hope that I can make a difference to their lives.”
