National Grandparent’s Day – September 13th

The Pantry of Broward reminds us that in 1978, President Jimmy Carter proclaimed that the first Sunday after Labor Day to be “National Grandparents Day.” This year it is Sunday, September 13th. The Pantry of Broward will be celebrating the sacrifice of hundreds of grandparents served by the agency who are raising their grandchildren despite the economic and emotional challenges they face. More than 2.4 million homes in the US are headed by grandparents who are raising their grandchildren. They have a head of silver and a heart of gold.
