FOSI (Friends of Staten Island)

The Friends of Staten Island (FOSI) is a student-run co-club of St. Joseph Hill Academy High School and Monsignor Farrell High School that commits to raising much-needed funds to support local charities on Staten Island. Mrs. Nelson and Mrs. Nevins are the FOSI Moderators.
In 2022, FOSI is supporting: 
  • Freedom from Fear
    • Freedom From Fear is a mental health advocacy organization that was founded in 1984 by Mary Guardino. Its mission is to positively impact the lives of all those affected by anxiety, depression, and related disorders through advocacy, education, research, and community support.
  • Metropolitan Fire Association
    • Metropolitan Fire Association, Inc. is a community based disaster relief organization that proudly serves the Staten Island community during emergencies since 1976. Their members assist the community by providing Medical Aid and Rescue Services in times of need.
  • Tackling Youth Substance Abuse
    • Tackling Youth Substance Abuse (TYSA) is a data-driven collaboration aimed at leveraging the power of collective impact to decrease substance misuse and increase healthy choices for Staten Island’s youth and young adults. It seeks to increase opportunities to access quality prevention, early intervention, treatment, and recovery services on Staten Island to change the dialogue around behavioral health issues.
  • Joseph Maffeo Foundation
    • The Joseph Maffeo Foundation was established to benefit the Staten Island community through its support of individuals and organizations in need of financial assistance, as well as by recognizing, through scholarship awards and charitable donations, individuals who by their actions exemplify the goals and objectives of the foundation. One of the foundation's current projects is to raise funds for the construction of a new Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Staten Island University Hospital - Northwell Health. The NICU will be part of the hospital's Women and Newborn Center.
We are excited to introduce FOSI's 2022 Raffle Baskets! All proceeds from FOSI's fundraising activities will go to those four Staten Island-based organizations.
