Snow Removal

Snow removal makes a big impact locally

It keeps older adults and pedestrians safe, while adhering to local laws. We connect neighbors for the shoveling season to support our older adults to keep their walkways safe.

Members Receiving Help:

  • Ideally, you are matched with one or two volunteers who are interested in snowshoveling for someone within 5 miles of their home. 
  • Please remember that a volunteer may have a job or other obligations, so they may not be able to get to you 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 drops to an unsafe level, volunteers are asked to wait until it is safe for them to leave home.

Volunteers a few things for you to know once you are matched with a member:

  • Please try and shovel within 24 to 36 hours of completion of snowfall. 
  • Please shovel sidewalks and a safe path from the sidewalk to the front door.  We do not require you to shovel entire driveways, back yards, alleys or parking lots.
  • If you do not have a snow shovel the member you are matched with may or we can provide you with one.
  • We do ask if you are paired but then are not in town during a snow fall that you find an alternative shoveler (family, roommate, friend). 

Thank you so much for volunteering to help keep our members connected to their community, your help is very much appreciated.
