Thank you to our Youth Services Department and the Newburyport Council on Aging for partnering on to create the Snow Angel Program. Please sign up and help neighbors this winter!
Every winter, people across the region pull out their shovels and stock up on salt in anticipation of the coming storms. Snow on sidewalks is a potential hazard to those with limited mobility as well as children at school bus stops. It also makes it difficult for those who deliver services to our community, including mail carriers, meter readers, delivery services, and emergency services. However, there are a number of people who simply can’t remove snow and ice on their own. That’s where Snow Angels comes in.
The Snow Angels Program, a joint venture between Newburyport Youth Services and the Newburyport Council on Aging, is a voluntary snow removal service for senior citizens and persons with physical disabilities. The program’s goal is to help bring together residents who want to keep their sidewalks clear, but are physically unable to do so, with volunteers who want to help out their community. This program will run from December 1, 2019 through March 31, 2020.
If you want to volunteer, or are looking for some assistance with snow removal at your home, register online today or call Newburyport Youth Services at (978) 465-4434.
