Passing of HR 2857 would help my hometown of Groveton, Coos County, New Hampshire. The last industry, Wausau Paper Corporation, closed 31 Dec 2007 and put 400 people out of work. The 2005 Census Demographis lists Groveton's population as 2,417 and the median age is 38.4 years.

To little benefit for too much money spent. There are better ways to accomplish good.

I agree with Joy, I see very little benefit from ammending two programs to accomplish the same amount as before.

If it costs money NO stop spending!

Can't get an answer as to exactly what it is but sounds like it may be a so called...manditory- volunteer oxymoron bill NO to that too.

Be VERY careful!

This bill has an incidious side to it! It seeks to have volunteers SPY for Big Brother (watch this argument on ESPN local cable for the House/Senate debates, aired this morning! 03-06-08)

Please keep in mind that there are VERY dark forces "in play" for our civil liberties and rights (to be taken from us)!

Write to your congress people and senators, today, to put a STOP to this type of legislative "hijacking"!

-Good Luck! God Bless America!

It is very disappointing to Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Child, Inc., that our government spends 42 million dollars on letters about a tax refund, billions in Iraq, and yet the G.I.V.E. Act struggles for acceptance.

If they don't pass the G.I.V.E. Act, "We the People" will have to GIVE more of our tax money for prisons, GIVE more of our tax money for drug and alcohol abuse, GIVE more of our tax money for teenage pregnancy, and GIVE more of our tax money for welfare.

The G.I.V.E. Act and a proactive approach seems so much more logical, supportive, and responsible.

A vote for Service-Learning and support for Service-Learning will enrich this country, its youth, and its educators. It will also keep more money in your wallet in the long run.

When you realize how valuable Service-Learning is, please call your representatives and persuade them to pass the G.I.V.E. Act.

God Bless all who support the G.I.V.E. Act!

Sincerely,

$36.98

You will have to take that out several place values for how much it will cost to incarcerate and rehabilitate, instead of using Service-Learning to inspire those we need to educate.
