Volunteer your family for Snow Buddies to help seniors shovel their sidewalk

posted by:

Do you want to teach your kids to volunteer while also being active?

Volunteers of America Handyman Program is in great need of volunteers for shoveling seniors’ walkways and sidewalks in their annual Snow Buddies program.

snowbuddiesThis program seeks to assist seniors 60 and better, living in Adams, Arapahoe, Denver, Douglas, and Jefferson counties with snow removal throughout the winter season. Volunteers and senior clients are matched when they live within 2 miles of each other. Volunteers are asked to shovel sidewalks and walkways for their senior buddy when it snows 2+ inches within a 24 hour period.

Many of these Seniors can no longer complete this task themselves and need your help staying safe this winter.

Volunteers of all ages are welcome! (16 and under must be accompanied by an adult.)  All that is asked is that you supply your own shovels.

Interested? Have questions? Contact Kimberly at 303-297-0408 or email snowbuddies@voacolorado.org.
