Tomorrow at the First Christian Church in downtown Bowling Green the “Bowling Green Chili Cook Off Benefitting Community Action of Southern Kentucky And The Foster Grandparent Program” will start at 11am to 1:30pm. Tickets are $5 in advance $7 at the door. Tickets are at DC Clement State Farm office and Community Action office also has tickets.
The Foster Grandparents Program matches up seniors with children who have special needs such as abuse, neglect, physical, mental, or emotional disabilities as well as those who are in the juvenile justice system. They provide individual attention and assistance 15 – 40 hours per week. They attend 40 hours of pre-service training and monthly in- service trainings thereafter. Currently, approximately 105 Foster Grandparents serve at 45 stations, which include schools, Head Start centers, and other non-profit facilities.
Like always, we expect Bowling Green to come out and give back!
