ADOPT A GRANDPARENT DAY TOMORROW: VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
Hundreds of South Mississippians are getting ready for “Adopt a Grandparent Day.” The event is held throughout South Mississippi each year the day after National Grandparents Day. A year of preparations and hard work pays off for this local nonprofit, the hundreds of volunteers and nursing home residents they visit one hour, one day each year.
Sadly, half of all residents in nursing homes and senior living facilities never receive a visitor.
“Adopt a Grandparent” volunteers will visit 30 nursing homes in six Mississippi counties tomorrow. Volunteers are still needed to visit two Stone County nursing homes. If you are interested, visit adoptagrandparentday.org for more information.
