Family & Community
As a company, Grandma’s House has recognized the importance and need to teach children compassion for one another, their surrounding communities, those less fortunate and our earth. We do this throughout the year by incorporating family nights, participating in community events, holding various drives to support local organizations, providing access to private parent/center websites and creating special activities for the children. It's never too early to start teaching your children the value of community service. Getting involved in volunteering at a young age can set a life-long pattern of advancing the common good. There are many great opportunities for community service for children that will expand their social circle, teach them empathy and compassion, and increase their chances of success in life.
In December, we collect Christmas gifts for children in foster care through Children’s Hospital.
