ADOPT A GRANDPARENT DAY (WXXV article)
September 9th will be the fourth annual Adopt a Grandparent Day.
The nonprofit aims to make the golden years a little bit more golden, at least for one day. Last year they were able to increase their reach to include 33 nursing homes in the six bottom counties.
They are still in need of hundreds of volunteers to make sure that they give every grandparent a chance to feel special. Adopt a Grandparent Founder Kathy Rogers said, “The upper three counties need a lot more volunteers up there so join us and make a difference. We are also looking for items to put in the gift bags for seniors because we take a little goody bag for each senior so if you have some kind of swag item that you want to donate that you want to go in the gift bags, we would love to have it.”
