|The article in the Advance has really produced results.
We received over 20 calls today from parents to enroll their children.
We also received a call from St. Peters and they are once again coordinating an effort that should generate over 50 volunteers, joining Monsignor Farrell and St. Clares in the 50 volunteer club.
We received a call from the volunteer coordinator at Staten Island Academy and he is going to coordinate an effort there as well.
A few employees at Commerce Bank also called to adopt a few seniors.
We also contacted the Staten Island Yankees to see if they would be interested in sponsoring the program by offering free tickets to participating students. We are waiting to hear back.
Finally Parent magazine called and they want to do a story on the program.
We also received call from over 20 new seniors registering for the first time.
We currently have 325 confirmed volunteers with an additional 50 pending.
We are hoping that other schools and businesses follow the examples above.
Keep spreading the word.
