Assemblymember Michael Reilly (R-South Shore) is teaming up with local not-for-profit Where to Turn to offer community service credit to local students who help collect and return political campaign signage from now until the beginning of December. Reilly and Where to Turn last partnered on this initiative in 2018.
“With Election Day behind us, it is now time to begin collecting the political signage that had been posted throughout Staten Island by various campaigns over the past several months. Often these signs are left posted long into the next year and it can understandably become a nuisance for the surrounding community,” said Reilly. “This is a great opportunity for students to earn some community service credit, especially during a time when their options are limited due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.”
Collected signs can be turned into Where to Turn at 22 Brienna Court or by contacting Dennis McKeon at (718) 966-6531.
