|Well we got through our first storm of the season.
Only 135 calls from seniors who were looking for help.
Some who were registered but for whom we do not have volunteers but most were first time callers as is the case every year with the first storm.
We had over 500 volunteers out shoveling and only had a few calls about no shows, which we have addressed.
We actually received a few calls from seniors to thank us for the volunteer shovelers.
We did receive over 40 new applications for student volunteers (over 20 from Port Richmond High School) and are in the process of matching them up to seniors.
Please keep spreading the word.
We will update you after the holidays.
Merry Christmas and lets hope itís not white
