March into Giving Drive
I am involved with volunteering and fundraising for an organization called
Women In Need (www.women-in-need.org).

Throughout March, I will be collecting items for a baby and book supply
drive to benefit the families at the shelters run by Women In Need.
See attached flyer.
I will be collecting:
Children's clothes, particularly baby items (newborn and under 1 year-
onesies, socks, hats, blankets, bottles, pacifiers) and children's books
(particularly pre-school age).
All items must be new or in very good condition and cleaned (bottles and
pacifiers must be new)- used clothes and books are fine as long as good
condition.

Do not wrap the items.

If you have stuff, let me know and I'll try to figure out a pick up time and
location. Or, let me know and we can arrange for you to drop it with my
doorman at 140 Cabrini.

Thanks,
Nicole Tell

Eagle Egg Hunt Edit


Time: 11:30 AM ? 4:30 PM

EAGLE EGG HUNT

Place: J. Hood Wright Park


Fun and educational event for children. The children will hunt for hidden "eagle" eggs and candy.

The children who find the imitation eagle eggs in the park will each receive a prize, either a bald eagle plush toy, which makes a call like a bald eagle when squeezed, or the winner will receive a copy of the book "The Little Red Lightouse."

Twelve prizes will be awarded.

Afterward the egg hunt neighborhood residents are invited on a brief walk to investigate the conditions along the footpath at 177th Street with Foot Park's Alan Ginsberg at 2:45 p.m.

Volunteers wanted to make this a memorable event for the children. Call 212-674-5121.

Location: J. Hood Wright Park, Fort Washington Avenue, between 173rd and 176th Streets.

Sponsor(s): Foot Park

Musicians On Call

While working at New York Presbyterian Hospital I coordinated with
Musicians on Call (M.O.C.) to have volunteer musicians come and play at the
bedside of oncology patients. The feedback was unanimously positive
from patients, family, hospital staff, and musicians.
Musicians on Call is looking for musicians to volunteer to play at NYC
hospitals. They also are looking for people to coordinate the
volunteer sessions on-site. This is a great volunteer opportunity- one with
immediate impact!
While some commitment is necessary M.O.C. understands that the
schedules of musicians are ever-changing and they will work with you in terms
of coordinating your time.
Please check out their website: www.musiciansoncall.org
and/or contact the volunteer coordinator Michael Hill at (212) 741-2709
e-mail: michael.hill@musiciansoncall.org
