grants4grads is the charity I'm familiar with, that charity is doing a great job serving a segment of the population that is being ignored... grandparents supporting grandchildren.
I have had the pleasures of meeting Joyce and her director of special events David. Great people. Joyce is very passionate in her organization and helping local grandparents with their needs to provide for the grandchildren they are raising. It's hard enough to provide for yourself on a fixed income and not being the most desirable employee for hire and that's where Joyce and Grants 4 Grands step in.
On the behalf of grandparents everywhere I wold like to thank you guys for all your hard work. By the way, the kids loved their Easter gifts. Thanks again!
For over 25 years L.A.C.E. founder / CEO, Ms. Joyce Eatman has been serving Clark County, as a non-profit food pantry and, most recently, thorough our "Grants 4 Grands" program.
G 4 G assists grandparents raising their grandchildren, often not by choice. This is a growing national problem as the "working poor" continue to need assistance, if not more in the cases of parents being deceased, addicted to drugs or in prison.
My name is David Epstein. Approximately ten years ago I started as a volunteer for L.A.C.E. I now serve as Director of Special Events/Fundraising.
