Supposedly Written by Kristan Zimmer
Joseph F. Pisani, former editor and senior vice president of Greenwich Time and the Stamford Advocate was keynote speaker at the recent annual meeting of the Greenwich Service Unit of the Salvation Army held at Luca’s Steak House.
Mr. Pisani, a principal with the Dilenschneider Group in New York City, spoke about “a spiritual malaise of the baby boomer years,” and congratulated the local Salvation Army Unit on its many years of service to needy Greenwich residents. “Happiness is in giving and surely that is your reward,” he said.
Community Gifts Coordinator Alison Brush from the Greenwich Social Services Department, who also serves as liaison to the Salvation Army Service Unit, reported that in fiscal 2007-08 there were 60 requests for emergency aid including the prevention of evictions and utility shut-offs, 24 cases; purchasing beds and other furniture, 12 cases; car repair, tires and payment, five cases; air conditioners, three cases; and aid for fuel, medical care, glasses, clothing, and moving, seven cases. Two hundred twenty-eight children received boots and shoes for the Back to School Program; 20 children and 25 seniors were granted camperships; food was purchased for the Social Services Department’s Emergency Food Closet; and eight requests for Stop & Shop shopping cards were granted. Additional aid from the Service Unit included Greenwich Adult Day Care, six cases; child care, two cases; employability, three cases and heavy duty cleaning, three cases. Mrs. Brush also reported that in July, the Greenwich Service Unit held its third annual Food Drive at Town Hall where employees donated more than 500 pounds of food for Neighbor to Neighbor and the Social Services Department’s Food Closet.
