From Sat Apr 19, 2008 3:00 am to Wed Apr 23, 2008 2:59 am (included)
|With all three precincts working security for the Pope and many of our volunteers involved in other activities we decided to take a day off from cleanups.
We did a few but also visited sites for next weekend to coordinate next week’s “Tag You’re It” weekend. Our goal is to clean up at least 25 locations next weekend.
As it stands now through our coordinated efforts
57 Locations have been cleaned
17 Locations were turned over to the Clean Team
26 Locations are pending cleanup
5 Locations have issues preventing us from cleaning.
We still have not heard back about any of our grant applications but did receive a $150 contribution from the Richmondtown Civic Association
We also received a call from PS373R on Henderson Ave in Staten Island. They are a District 75 school, self contained special education program.
It seems that the students have heard about our work and would like to give us a grant from the Penny Harvest money that they collected.
The students would really like to participate some way in our work so the teachers and I are going to put our heads together and come up with a community service program for them.
We will keep you posted.
Please let us know if any of you are available next weekend. We are scheduling outings with all three precincts and need student and adult volunteers.
