This year the Inn has established a Community Service Sub-Committee which will be chaired by Ellen Giarratana who can be reached at  So far, three activities are planned for this year:

          Stuffed Animal Drive for 1st Responders– October & November.  Bring a cuddly stuffed animal or two for our drive.  These will be delivered to 1st Responders, who will use them to comfort toddlers and children they might encounter on accident scenes or domestic violence responses.

          Professional Clothing Drive (Lightly Used)– February & March.  This is our annual drive to assist those in need of professional attire.  If you have a suggestion for a service provider or charity who could utilize these items this year, please contact Ellen at  

           Brothers’ Redevelopment Paint-A-Thon.  Plan to join your fellow Inn members for a day of painting and fix-up for a low income senior’s home, in conjunction with Brothers Redevelopment.  Our day of action will likely take place in April or May, and will require 15 to 25 volunteers.  For a better idea of the fun and satisfaction we will have in store, take a look at these two short vignettes:
