                            Foster Grandparent Program 
Do you know a senior citizen who wants to be more involved with our community? Why not suggest they become a Foster Grandparent? Administered through the Department of Senior Affairs, this program matches volunteers ages 55+ with children in need of tutoring and mentoring. These senior volunteers provide assistance with reading and math, social development, and assist younger students with school readiness. This terrific program is always in need of volunteers, so if you or someone you know would like to become a Foster Grandparent, contact Maria Requa at: [email protected] to learn more.
