Are you ready to join the Snow Busters team?
If you enjoy helping out in your neighborhood, Snow Busters might be right for you. Every year, the city receives numerous requests from the elderly or people with disabilities with limited financial resources who need assistance shoveling their sidewalk when it snows. If you join the Snow Busters volunteer team, you’ll be matched with a resident in need who lives within two miles of your home. All you need to do is show up and shovel within 24 hours after a snowfall. You’ll provide peace of mind and a safe sidewalk. Read about the program in 5280 Magazine or get started now.
