What is "Life is Grand"?
Life is Grand is a non-profit organization which pairs an elder with a middle to high school age student based on their interests. This gives the senior adults company, an understanding friend, and a helper in their daily needs. The student gets something to look forward to after school, the opportunity to learn, and a feeling of accomplishment.
