"Letter from the President"
(February 2018)

Dear Friends,

Can you believe this wind? I hope that everyone is staying safe and warm. I also cannot believe it is almost March. I am currently signing up volunteers for April through June. If you are a current volunteer, PLEASE contact me to confirm your dates for these months. We usually have 4 volunteers on each shift with one working board member. One of these volunteers needs to be able to lift more than 20 pounds to carry items out to the cars. We often get asked if we can use groups to volunteer at ICC; as much as we would like to, it is very difficult because our facility is very small. The gardening season will be starting again and that is a GREAT time to use groups or families to assist ICC.

We are grateful to you, our donors for your continued support. We are beginning to see new clients coming to ICC for assistance from the St Salome apartments right across the street. I imagine we will begin to see a substantial increase in the number of seniors and adults with disabilities than we currently have. We are proud to continue to serve weekend backpacks to 7 Irondequoit elementary schools and we are up to 175 bags PER WEEK! In addition to this, we also provide snacks to the same 7 schools for the month. Currently we are running low on several items (see Top 10 list at the bottom) but we know that with your support we will be able to fill our shelves.

Our annual board meeting is in April and anyone is welcome to come. We are in the process of firming up that date. April is also when United Way kicks off their annual appeal; as a reminder our agency designee number is 2466

Many of you have donated since my last email and I would like to thank you now. Thank you so much to:

Those of you who anonymously drop donations off at the library and Ridge Culver Fire Dept, we are very grateful for your generosity! (As a reminder these are drop off points, not places where people can go through and pick out food that they would like to take)
