Back to School for Grandparents Raising Grandchildren….
Back to school shopping can create a lot of stress on families in need.  Thanks to the Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Program funded by the Community Council of Greater Dallas, grandchildren go back to school in style.  During a two day shopping spree with staff from the Caregiver Support Program, fourteen grateful grandparents and their grandchildren filled their baskets with school uniforms, shoes, socks, and school supplies.  The Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Program provides the opportunity for grandchildren to begin the new school year with the necessary tools to achieve their academic goals.  In this struggling economy, grandparents appreciate any assistance available to relieve the financial burden of raising growing grandchildren.
