Volunteers Needed For Grandparents Support Network this Fall

August 06, 2019
GSN Grandparents Support Network has served as an asset to Wilmington families for many years, and showed NHRMC employees a great time this semester! Our team is currently recruiting volunteers to work with children ages 10-18 during the program’s upcoming fall session.

Every Thursday night from 6-8 p.m, our local YWCA partners with First Presbyterian Church to offer a support group for grandparents providing full-time care to their grandchildren. At weekly meetings, the program provides mentor, academic and social support to both adult and child participants while providing much needed respite and fellowship opportunity for caregivers. Sessions include dinner (provided at no cost) and guest speakers/educators focused on topics relevant to strengths and challenges identified by program participants.

If you are able to commit once a month and interested in being a part of NHRMC’s volunteer team or more information on the program, please contact Marissa Bryant at [email protected] or 667-5736 before Thursday, August 29th.
