FGP Blankets

The Foster Grandparent Program through the De Queen Mena Education Service Cooperative

had the honor of delivering 21 handmade blankets made by the foster grandparents to the Baptist Health and Mercy Hospital Cancer Centers. This is an MLK service day that the foster grandparents participate in each year. They love getting the opportunity to share their talents with others especially during these difficult times.
