Now that the weather is getting cold –the town of Greenburgh is resuming efforts to locate snow angels who will assist seniors/disabled residents clear their driveways of snow. The snow angels program was started over 20 years ago and depends on volunteers. Last year we helped more seniors than we ever had helped.  Unfortunately, every year we lose some volunteers—some volunteers no longer have the energy to help their neighbors. Some student volunteers are now in college. So – I’m making this annual appeal for new recruits so we can continue to help as many people as possible..

Wanted: Snow angels to help clear snow from driveways.We need two kinds of snow angels:
1)       Volunteers who will clear driveways of seniors (meals and wheels recipients), those with disabilities—residents on fixed incomes who have health problems. The snow angels who volunteer for this category will not charge a fee.
2)       Those who are willing to help others for a fee.

During the winter months I receive calls from seniors, disabled residents and others seeking help. If you are willing to help out this winter—please e mail me and provide me with your name, phone number. If you are over 18 can we post your name and contact information on a snow angels section of our web site? If you are under 18 we will need permission from your parents to release your name and phone.  Please advise if you are willing to help  those who reside throughout the town or only in a neighborhood close to your home.  What neighborhood?   Would you like to be matched with one family –and be responsible for assisting that family during the entire winter months? Or would you prefer volunteering only occasionally during the winter months—without taking on the responsibility of helping one family?
. We always are in need for new volunteers.  If you are a senior and need a snow angel please e mail me with particulars about your circumstances and I’ll try matching you up…
Please e mail pfeiner@greenburghny.com.  Student volunteers will receive certificates of appreciation and letters of recommendation when applying for jobs/colleges.
