During the past 29 years, volunteers (including myself) have been part of a neighbor-helping-neighbor program called the Snow Angels. Volunteers have shoveled snow from driveways of senior citizens and disabled residents — helping the recipients feel safe and comfortable after a snowstorm. Some of the people we have helped in the past need a clear driveway or walkway for deliveries of food/medication. Others worry what they will do if they have a medical emergency.

If you know of students who are willing to volunteer for the 2020/2021 season, please email me at pfeiner@greenburghny.com. Info I need: Does the student have a car? Name, address, email address, phone of student volunteer; area the snow angel is willing to help out (neighborhoods/streets).

Although most Snow Angels haven't been paid for their services, sometimes residents are able to pay. If you know of someone who would only perform this service for a fee, please provide me with their contact information and their rates. I will share that with residents who contact me.

We've had a successful program over the years, but it hasn't snowed much during the past year. We're a little out of practice, so could use more help.
