No summary paragraph submitted.


For the last 20 years the GT Women's Resource Center has done a holiday project called Project Healthy Grandparent.  There are many reasons grandparents become caregivers and second-time parents. The issues cross socioeconomic and racial lines, but many of the grandparents are on a fixed income and the holidays are difficult for them to manage. They have identified their family and would love it if you'd help celebrate them this holiday season!  The details of the program are below, as well as the wish list!  Please contact Colleen Riggle at if you’d like to participate.

Deadline for Gifts/Contributions: Friday, December 1.

Below is the wish list:

  • Clothes- Pants & Shirts
  • Pajamas
  • Underwear & Socks
