Gifts donated to grandparents raising grandchildren


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Christmas came early for grandparents and their grandkids.

Blue Cross and Blue Shield spent the morning giving gifts to children in the Grandparents Raising Grandchildren program.

Employees are given wish lists then they can personally donate or raise money to fulfill the wish lists.

Families we spoke with say it’s a relief to get help.

“I’m at a loss for words. This is amazing. I’m so thankful for everything you guys do,” said Cheryl Teasyatwho, one of the grandparents.

This year, employees adopted 24 families. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
