Volunteers of America Snow Buddies
Volunteers of America can help those 60 and older in Adams, Arapahoe, Denver, Douglas and Jefferson counties with shoveling snow. We make a match between a client and a volunteer who live within two miles of each other. Then, when there is a snowfall of 2 or more inches, we ask the volunteers to shovel the sidewalk and walkway for their assigned senior within 24 hours. This program was initiated to keep seniors safe from falls on snow or ice during the winter. The program also keeps seniors from accruing city or county fines for not being able to shovel their snow from the sidewalks. - See more at: http://www.voacolorado.org/Volunteer
