FEMA and Home Owners Insurance
Please note; if you have filed with FEMA and they have declined any payment, And you have filed with your own Homeowner insurance /Auto etc. and have been declined or not covered for enough damages - call FEMA ASAP and inform them of being declined from your carrier. FEMA will then cover ALL COSTS for damages incurred by SANDY that your own insurance did not cover. You MUST have a letter of being declined from your own insurance company. Also if you have not received any notice and still waiting for an answer form your insurance carrier ask them to send you a letter stating of insurance being DELAYED. Please pass this on

Sandy Holiday Toy Store Update
Day six and another 28 families and 168 toys distributed
In only six days we have distributed 1419 toys
We left last night a little concerned as the shelves were looking a little bare.
We got a call today from Joe Borelli and he said a truck was on the way with 1,000.
Well thanks to Joe’s truck and all the toys from Monsignor Farrell the shelves are once again fully stocked
We are expecting a very busy weekend so keep those toys coming.
If you haven’t yet please stop by and say hello.
We are waiting on the 1,000 Hess trucks.
We also received quite a few calls about people planning to donate.
I was interviewed by Anthony Pascale for this week in Staten Island.
I spent 12 minutes discussing the Toy Store and 3 minutes questioning what is being done with the over $200 million collected by the Red Cross
We are finalizing plans with Scott to do his tin foil sculpture Saturday.
We received a generous $1,500 donation from a 9/11 family member,
We purchased $500 in movie tickets and are going to buy $1,000 in gifts for older kids.
I just want to say that I have the greatest group of volunteers. Without them none of this would have been possible. (They unloaded the entire truck today)
Many were complete strangers when we started and now act as if they have known each other forever
I am extremely lucky
PROM DRESSES FOR SANDY VICTIMS
I know you may think that it is a little early for this but I want to catch the college kids before they go home for the break.
Every year we run a Prom Dresses for all through which we collect used prom dresses have them dry cleaned and make them available to girls who cannot afford them.
Come May I am sure that there will be a lot more girls in that situation.
So I am asking any young lady who has a prom dress that she is never going to re-use to donate it to Where to Turn and we will get it to a needy Sandy victim so that they will not miss out on their prom.
We will begin collecting in January while we are running our Re-Gifting for a Good Cause Program. See details below.
Prom dresses can be dropped off at
150-L Greaves Lane # 312
Staten Island NY 10308
Or if your school would like to collect we will come and pick them up.
