Snow Removal

Help us make a big impact locally by matching with a nearby elder for the winter!

Help empower your elder neighbors by shoveling walks. Snow shoveling is an important service- we’re keeping seniors safe and healthy, while looking out for all our pedestrians.

A Little Help Snow Shoveling Process and Proceedure

Volunteering Members

  • You are matched with one or two members for one full snow shoveling season
  • You have 24 to 36 hours to shovel the walkway/driveway
  • If the weather service designates a Winter Storm warning or if the temperature gets below 12 degrees farenheit, we ask that you do not go out and try to shovel
  • It is your responsibility to communicate with the member if you will be out of town or unable to shovel

Members Receiving Help

  • You are matched with one (sometimes two) volunteers for one full snow shoveling season
  • The volunteer you are matched with must live within 5 miles of you, if we are unable to find a volunteer within 5 miles, we will try to provide you with other options
  • Please remember that a volunteer may have a job or other obligations, so they may not be able to get to your driveway and sidewalk immediately after snow stops falling - they have 24 to 36 hours to shovel
  • If the weather service designates a Winter Storm warning or if the temperature gets below 12 degrees farenheit, volunteers are asked not to go out
