Winter will be here before we know it and we have nearly 2,500 seniors who have already requested assistance with shoveling.



Earlier this week we sent out 435 letters to students who participated in the program last year. (we lost 200 seniors to graduation)



We have already gotten 110 positive responses.



The Advance ran an item in their Helping Hands Column yesterday asking for student volunteers



Today I received 75 calls



Four new volunteers and 71 new seniors asking to be added to the program.



We have sent letters out to all our local schools asking for a single point of contact in each.



We once again have only heard back from St. Peterís Boys, Monsignor Farrell and St. Clares



The same three schools that supply the majority of our volunteers each year.



We need your help.



Please ask youíre your children or grandchildren if their schools are promoting the program.



Help us spread the word.



Even if we get 10 students from each school we would be able to shovel for over 1,000 seniors.



Thanks



Dennis
