July 24 - Foster Grandparent Honored

Posted: Updated:

GOOD MORNING DELMARVA - SHORE UP! Inc.'s Foster Grandparent Ms. Linda Townsend worked her magic and helped a child blossom into communicating and engaging with other children-when no one else could-earning her the Foster Grandparent Shining Star award.

Townsend works at the Crisfield Head Start Center and this has been her first year as a Foster Grandparent.

The Shining Star award goes to the Foster Grandparent who has done outstanding service throughout the school year. Foster Grandparents are senior volunteers who serve in schools, day-care centers and other child-centered programs as tutors and mentors.
