Adopt-A-Grandparent


Hillsdale College

Mission

Adopt a Grandparent seeks to cultivate genuine relationships between Hillsdale students and elderly members of the community in order to share love, joy, and friendship with the previous generation.

About

Students visit the facility weekly to love and share joy with their adopted grandparent by swapping stories, reading, singing, and spending time together. Large groups of volunteers also visit the facility throughout the year for movie and game nights, caroling, and other, miscellaneous events. In addition, on-campus events like letter writing, art nights, and card decorating provide an opportunity for casual volunteers to participate without leaving campus.
