This past holiday season, SEEK student Bruce French came to the SEEK Office with an idea: why not help Project Hospitality, Staten Island’s respected not-for-profit agency for the homeless, find warm clothing for those in need? The idea, eventually dubbed “Socks for SEEK,” took hold when he and Counselor Fran Fassman decided to reach out across campus for donations of warm winter socks. As a result, socks of every size and style began pouring in, and in the end, Bruce and his fellow students managed to collect 225 pairs. Delivered to Project Hospitality by Dr. Fassman and SEEK Counselor Miriam Perez-Lai just before the holidays, the socks made their way into the agency’s holiday baskets in time for Christmas. Not only did SEEK students and staff give to this drive, but donations poured in from other offices as well – Financial Aid, Bursar, Testing, Academic Advising, Counseling, Alumni to name just a few – proving that CSI staff members always rise to the occasion.
