From Sun May 03, 2009 3:00 am to Mon May 18, 2009 2:59 am (included)
We hope you will join us as we will kick off spring with a very busy May.
We are currently sending out certificates to the student volunteers who shoveled for 655 seniors this past winter.
We are putting together a schedule with the 3 precincts to conduct weekly graffiti cleanups. Our goal is to clean 75-100 locations a month.
We are hoping to complete the Flags Across Staten Island Project with Scott completing the last 17 flags.
We are going to supply volunteers for various events including;
The Great Kills Memorial Day Parade on May 16.
Various Beach and Cemetery Cleanups with FOAC and NRPA
We will be honoring Staten IslandĎs best at our Academic All County Ceremony at St. Johns on May 27.
We hope to have all issues resolved with the Historic Preservation people so we can begin work on the Hearts and Hands Memorial.
We will continue to work with Island Voice, Staten Island Psychiatric and the NSWC on various projects.
We will also continue to post daily updates as well as grant and employment opportunities on our website at www.where-to-turn.org
We will also continue to enroll members into the I Volunteer Program and work with VolunteerNYC to develop projects throughout the summer.
Hopefully you will join us.
