The Foster Grandparents Program is having a "back to school" charity event at Charming Charlie (Meyerland)! On Sunday, August 13th between noon-6pm, come by with a good excuse to shop :)
To support FGP, you simply say "I support the cause" to the cashier at no additional cost to the customer.
For every Foster Grandparent, at least 5 students are receiving one-on-one attention and shows significant improvement in school. For every Foster Grandparent outside of one-on-one tutoring and mentorship, 21 students are indirectly impacted. These relationships that 76 Foster Grandparents have built amount to over 2,000 children and youth building a brighter future.
The amount of time volunteers served last year saved their communities $1,427,571 in service provision costs.
We thank Charming Charlie for strengthening the program's outreach to positively influence both older adults and youth through mentor relationships!
