On August 28, ABCD will celebrate the Foster Grandparent Program’s 50th anniversary with a social media campaign via Youtube, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, honoring the contribution of Foster Grandparents to children and society and thanking the 50-plus Boston-area community partners that make the program possible. Presentations to several community partner honorees will traverse the globe via social media.
“We’re using 21st century social media to celebrate a heartwarming social program that began 50 years ago, before tweeting or YouTube existed,” said Nicci Meadow, ABCD Foster Grandparent Program Director.
“We want the world to know how valuable this program is,” said ABCD President/CEO John J. Drew. “And social media can help make that happen. This program couldn’t work without the committed participation of our community partners and we’re proud to honor them on this all-important anniversary.”
