(This amendment provides $100,000 from the general fund to the Petersburg Foster Grandparents, Inc. The requested funds would be used to support the cost of operating transportation services for foster grandparents who are low-income seniors providing daily mentoring and tutoring in public schools, child care facilities, juvenile detention center, homeless shelters, group foster homes, alternative schools and state institutions for the mentally challenged clients. These volunteers provide 20 hours of service each week. Many of them live in areas where the public bus routes are not available.)
