Those Seeking Help and Volunteers are Encouraged to Sign-up Now
The City of Evanston’s Senior & Disabled Persons Snow Shoveling program connects residents with volunteers who are willing to provide snow shoveling services. Volunteers will be needed for the entire winter 2011-12 snow season.
Evanston residents often request assistance during harsh winters for snow shoveling and by residents providing their contact information to the program list, Evanston residents can be provided with a complete list of available volunteers in their area.
The resident is responsible for contacting the volunteer from the list provided them by the city’s volunteer program and for making financial or scheduling arrangements. The volunteer is responsible for completing the task or notifying the resident if they are unable to complete the work.
The program is in its second year of connecting residents with volunteers. The city encourages those willing to volunteer to register early; you never know when the first snow fall will arrive. The success of this program will benefit seniors and those with disabilities along with showing what a great volunteer spirit there is in Evanston.
