Mayor Mitchell Thanks Foster Grandparents
Mayor Jon Mitchell thanked some special volunteers at Pace Head Start Thursday morning.
As part of the Mayors Day of Recognition for National Service, Mitchell met with several so-called Foster Grandparents, who volunteer their time in the classroom spending quality time with children.
79-year-old Ellie Motta has been a Foster Grandparent since 2001. She says she finds new enjoyment in the program everyday.
The Foster Grandparent program is run through Coastline Elderly Services. 49 people from ages 55-94 took part in the program last year. Nine more have signed up and participated since then.
