Foster Grandparent Update!

Posted: November 22, 2017

One of PMCCP's Foster Grandparents reading to some of our fantastic kids.

In 2016, the Foster Grandparent Program was cancelled after it was given up by its receiver, Catholic Community Services. The Foster Grandparent Program provides non-taxable stipends to seniors on a low, fixed income working with children, and PMCCP has used this program since the 1980s. As many of you may know, PMCCP loves and relies on our Foster Grandparent Program and in response to this we continued to raise money to support and maintain it.

We are proud to announce that the federal grant to coordinate the Foster Grandparent Program was awarded to Homage Senior Services (formerly Senior Services of Snohomish County). We hope that the program will be up and running again no later than January 2018. We are all so thankful that this valuable program is in good hands once again.

21st Annual Walk for Kids Success!

This year we raised $20,000 for our tuition assistance program through the Annual Walk For Kids!

We would like to thank all of the individuals and local businesses who helped us reach our goal. We had a wonderful march through the Market and a fabulous dance party with The Not-Its! in the Market Atrium. Without you, non of this would be possible. Keep a lookout for the next Walk for Kids in October 2018!

Thank you to All Our Sponsors!
