We once again received a Thanksgiving gift from IS49 in the form of an additional 20 volunteers.

We also got an e-mail from New Dorp HS stating that they are sending in an additional 30 applications,

We are currently matching them up with seniors.

We currently have 300 volunteers assigned and we are waiting on parental consent forms on another 50.

We are still about 100 volunteers behind last year’s pace.

We have gotten some good feedback.

IS 75 has distributed the applications we provided to their students and we have received quite a few calls.

I will also be speaking at a meeting of the Staten Island Federation of Catholic School Parents on December 2.

Hopefully I will be able to generate interest in all of our programs.

Unfortunately we have little or no support from most of the schools on the Island and 90% of our volunteers come from 10 schools.

We will continue our outreach and hope you will spread the word as well.

Finally I will be appearing on the Sunday Morning News program on ABC on January 11 to raise awareness of the Snow Shoveling Program as well as all of our other programs.

Happy Thanksgiving

Dennis
