We are currently have nearly 500 carry over students from last year’s “Snow Shoveling for Seniors” Program..



Letters are going out to them this week to confirm participation for this winter.



We have once again contacted our local schools and hope to recruit another 250 new volunteers.



This program is not just open to students.



I am sure we can find a senior for any able bodied adult.


For those of you who can't shovel we ask that you keep an eye on any seniors on your block during the coming winter.

A call works wonders. They may need something from the store or the pharmacy or maybe just to talk.

Also if you have sons or daughters here is a new way for them to accumulate additional community service hours.

If they agree to take out the garbage for a senior twice a week Where to Turn will award 1 hour of community service per week.

For this program we will concentrate on seniors 70 or older or those with disabilities. (we have over 2,500 seniors in our database)

Your son or daughter will be able to accumulate 52 hours each year.

Not many people realize it but by the year 2010 we will have over 65,000 seniors living on Staten Island.

These two programs will make life just a little bit easier for those who have done so much for Staten Island.
