We are about to begin ourWe are about to begin our SCI AmeriCorps year with our new group of AmeriCorps members. As a former AmeriCorps member, I can tell you from experience that the start of AmeriCorps service is an exciting but financially daunting time. As a group, these AmeriCorps members will commit over 34,000 hours of service in our communities. The AmeriCorps stipend is a modest living allowance of about $1100 per month (before taxes). We thought, what better way to welcome them to the SCI family than to offer them meals during their trainings.

I'm posting this message on behalf of our Program Manager, Dan McConvey, who is leading the first day of training as I write. I left the members in Dan's good hands a bit earlier today in order to catch up on some other items at the office this afternoon!

Orientation begins today and we would like to raise a total of $400 to feed our group of 20 AmeriCorps members. Given that orientation is in downtown Boston we are budgeting $20 per member to provide lunch and refreshments for the three days of training. Federal rules don't allow our grant budget to be used to provide food, so we're reaching out to our network of supporters that appreciate the service and commitment of our AmeriCorps members.  We ask that you help us support our members with a proper kick-off so they know that their commitment and contributions to our communities are truly appreciated.
