Melissa Rabinovich of NY1News made me aware of the following



They were working on a story and had hoped to help a SI family with a very sick father. Unfortunately, they didn't get the chance because the dad passed away today. He was 40 and suffered from ALS. He was a MTA worker who fell just shy of a full pension. As you can imagine, the family incurred extensive medical bills and may face foreclosure. He has

2 sons. Alex is 4 and Max is 8.



The JCC and PS 58 are asking families of fellow classmates for donations but they wanted to know if we could help especially with the holidays coming.



If anyone would like to donate a toy or gift please let us know.



If you would like make a tax deductible financial donation we will turn over 100% of what we collect to the family.



If you would like to donate directly to the family let me know and I will give the information.



Gifts can be dropped off at the



The UPS Store

150-L Greaves Lane

Staten Island, NY 10308



Just let them know it is for Where to Turn



Checks can be made payable to



Where to Turn

150-L Greaves Lane # 312

Staten Island NY 10308



Please note Holiday Support in memo



Any help would be greatly appreciated.



We have also gotten other requests and will be collecting toys right up until Christmas weekend.



Thanks again



Dennis
