LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A local nonprofit that helps grandparents raise their grandchildren was recently exposed nationally.
Joyce Eatman appeared on Kelly Clarkson’s show last week.
“8 News Now featured us in November,” said Eatman, of the nonprofit Grants 4 Grands. “One of the show producers Kelly Clarkson saw the 8 News Now feature, and they called me and invited me to the show.”
She had the opportunity to share her efforts with her non-profit organization Grants 4 Grands here in Southern Nevada.
Across the country, there are over 3 million grandparents raising grandchildren for a number of reasons. Some of the parents are deceased, some are behind bars or simply unfit to care for the children.
Since the appearance, Eatman has received a number of calls from grandparents in need of assistance across the country, and she has done her best to connect them with agencies in their state as her efforts to fundraisers are only for people here in Las Vegas.
“I was so happy and satisfied with Channel 8 and the local support. People who need our help find us, and people who can help find us. It’s always a wonderful situation. To receive this call was really exciting said Eatman.
If you are a grandparent in need of help or are interested in donating to the charity, go to Grants4grands.net or call (702) 203-4348 and leave a message.
