As you know they are forecasting the first snowstorm of the season.
We currently have 350 confirmed volunteers as well as 50 additional that have been assigned but not confirmed.
Despite our repeated attempts we have many schools that have not even responded or only have 1 or 2 volunteers.
We will continue to recruit volunteers but we need you to inquire at your local school to see why we are getting such a poor response this year.
We currently have
50 volunteers from Monsignor Farrell
40 volunteers from St. Peters HS
No other schools come close.
Your help would be greatly appreciated.
We received over 50 calls from seniors requesting the service today and I am sure we will get a hundred more before Sunday.
We currently have 2,496 seniors enrolled in the program.
In the meantime if you have a senior on your block please help them shovel.
Or check on them to see if they need anything before the storm hits.
A little help goes a long way.
