The SNA would like to respond to a need that some of our neighbors have during the winter months.  Some residents in our neighborhood are not physically able to shovel their own walks and driveways when it snows, and they also lack the financial means to pay for snow removal.

In response to this need, the SNA is attempting to set up a volunteer snow removal service.  We need able-bodied residents who are willing to devote their time (and backs) to help out neighbors in need.  Our volunteers will be linked up with those in need who are in the closest proximity to them, and perhaps not just snow will be moved around in the Summit Neighborhood, but a lot of good will as well.

If you are in need of this service or if you would like to be a volunteer snow shoveler, please contact Phil Solomon at , and he will contact you with more information.

Volunteers are encouraged to respond soon, as winter is right.   around.   the corner!

I would tutor for shoveling.

Great questions, Greg. Our neighbor, Phil Solomon, is dealing with all of the logistics, as it is his project. I am not sure that he regularly checks this site, so I would suggest sending your questions to his email address, which is posted in the blog above.

I really like the idea of matching youth up with paying gigs, as well. We even discussed a little about tutoring services being involved, perhaps in exchange for students in need, or in addition, for students with even more extra time on their hands.

Are we waiting until we see if we have able bodied shovelers until we ask for sign ups?

I can help in small snow storms, but might need help in big ones. Do we have a category for that?

Is any outreach going to youth organizations in the community?

Might we match up youth with paying gigs of snow shoveling?
