It's National Volunteer Week; time to thank our Foster Grandparents

The Post-Standard (NY)

National Volunteer Week, April 23-29, is an opportunity to recognize and thank volunteers who lend their time, talent and support to causes they care about in our community. I would like to honor a special group of senior-citizen volunteers who bring their lifetime of experience and wisdom to support our community's youth through the PEACE, Inc. Foster Grandparent Program. Foster Grandparent volunteers spend a minimum of 15 hours each week at elementary schools, day care centers, and Head Start sites. Last year, 140 Foster Grandparents, ranging from age 55 to 89, donated 110,000 hours of service.
