Program Needs Student Volunteers To Help Shovel Paths Of Seniors

As the autumn weather slowly chills to winter, ice and snowfall are already on the minds of many Staten Island seniors.

Every year, the group Where to Turn sets out to make sure there's a team of student volunteers to help seniors shovel their paths.

As of now, there are more than 2,000 Island seniors signed up for the service, and not enough helping hands.

"They've worked their entire lives, said Dennis McKeon of Where To Turn. A lot of them are in their 80s or in their 90s, they just can't do this anymore. And just for the fact that they know there's somebody out there that's going to help them out it makes a big difference in their lives."

Students are assigned to one senior citizen that lives nearby his or her home. The student must be 13 years old and will receive community service for helping out.

To get involved in the program, call Where to Turn at 718-966-6531.
