We lucked out once again as this weekend’s storm pretty much missed the city. It did not stop the worried seniors from calling as we logged over 35 calls and registered another 22 seniors. We currently have 475 volunteers and over 2,300 seniors registered. Please continue to spread the word.

We distributed over 1,000 toys this past week to schools in Louisiana and to needy families on Staten Island through Project Hospitality. We have an additional 500 toys and will be distributing some at the Pediatric wing of Staten Island University Hospital with the Joseph Maffeo Foundation. The balance will be given to needy families on Staten Island. We have been contacted by a few and will try to supply toys that meet their needs. Most of our toys are for younger children (pre-school to pre-teen)

If you know anyone in need please contact us at 718-966-6531.

We are still looking for additional drop off points and sponsors for our Re-Gifting for a Good Cause Program. We would like to have them in place prior to Christmas so that when we put the program into full gear on the ABC Saturday Morning Show on 12/28 we can have all of the drop off points in place.

On a more somber note we have not been able to get any of our local Representatives to sign onto HR Bill 4266 (newly introduced version of HR Bill 1861). We will continue to try.

Any help with any of these initiatives would be greatly appreciated. We have also sent out our end of the year appeal to everyone on our mailing list. Any donations are 100% tax deductible and would be put to good use.

Thanks,

Dennis
