Wellington Cares To Host Free Grandparents Day Event Sept. 7 At The Mall

Wellington Cares will host a free event celebrating National Grandparents Day on Saturday, Sept. 7 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Mall at Wellington Green’s Live 360 room.

All are welcome to attend this event with the goal of bridging the generational gap, one bond at a time.

Guests will be treated to a fun afternoon with food, interactive games, story time and activities for all ages from the Mall at Wellington Green, Ford’s Garage, Luv 2 Play and Chick-fil-A.

Grandparents Day is a day for young and old to honor each other, and an opportunity for civic engagement for all generations.

There are three purposes for National Grandparents Day: to honor grandparents, to give grandparents an opportunity to show love for their children’s children, and to help children become aware of the strength, information and guidance that older people can offer.

“This is just another way our amazing volunteers are helping our local senior residents,” said Diane Gutman, volunteer coordinator for Wellington Cares. “We are excited to share in the fun with the community and encourage families of all ages to come and openly embrace the opportunity to interact with a fellow neighbor of the opposite age range.”

Guests will be able to hear more about the organization, the free services it offers, and discover the impact that Wellington Cares volunteers have in the community.

The event is free to attend, and sponsorships start at $50. For more information about the event or sponsorships, call (561) 568-8818 or visit www.wellingtoncares.org/events.
