Snow Shoveling Assistance (Volunteers)

Join your neighbors and help those who need assistance with snow shoveling.

Instructions on how to add a shovel request:


(Note - you need to enter a request each time it snows)
  1. Drag the red map marker to your exact location (where you need help) OR type the address (#, Street, City, State) in the form.  Then click "Next".
  2. For category, please choose "Snow Shoveling Assistance - Volunteer Request".
  3. For the "Issue Title" it will take on the category from the step 2.  This is important as this is the subject of the email that gets sent to nearby neighbors.
  4. For description enter the specific details of what you need shoveled, e.g., "Please shovel my steps, sidewalk, front porch, walkway, driveway, vehicle (include make, model, color, license plate, and car location)".
  5. If you have a photo of what you need shoveled, click "Choose File" below Upload an image.
  6. Enter your Email address (kept private). If you are making a request for someone else, use your own email.
  7. Click Submit then keep an eye out for the emails from volunteers who may comment on your request to let you know they are on their way.
Disclaimer: You are not guaranteed to be shoveled if you submit a request.  By submitting a request, you do so at your own risk.
