Each year the City of Loveland has over 100 applicants in need of someone to shovel their sidewalks after significant snowfalls. These residents are physically unable to shovel and cannot afford to hire a service.
The City's Snow Squad program assists these residents by matching them with a volunteer for the season. Volunteers will shovel the sidewalks and a path to the door for their assigned residents for any snowfall of 2 inches or more.
With minimal time commitment (average of 4 hours for the season), this can be a rewarding activity for you and/or your family!
Can't commit to a resident for the full season?
We're also in need of backup volunteers to fill in when our regular volunteers are out of town.
