Organizers are hoping a sweet tooth could lead to support for a program they say is crucial to the community.
The Foster Grandparent Program (FGP), which includes Pottawattamie, Mills, and Fremont Counties, provides volunteers aged 55 and older with an opportunity to work with children in day care centers, schools, shelters and other non-profit agencies that service youth.
Local businesses have donated sweet treats for a dessert auction held Thursday night.
Organizers are hoping to raise enough money to match a federal grant for the program.
