Are you looking for assistance with snow removal during the winter months? Or are you hoping to find a way to connect with your neighbors to offer your assistance shoveling? 

Those seeking help and those who would like to volunteer are encouraged to sign up for the City of Evanston's Snow Shoveling program. This service connects residents who are unable to shovel their own walks with volunteers who are willing to provide snow shoveling services. Volunteers are needed for the entire winter 2019-20 snow season.

Evanston residents often request assistance during harsh winters for snow shoveling; when volunteers submit their contact information to the program list, Evanston residents can be provided with a complete list of available volunteers in their area upon request. The resident is responsible for contacting volunteers from the list provided to them by the City's volunteer program and for making scheduling services directly with the volunteer. The volunteer is responsible for completing the task or notifying the resident if they are unable to complete the work.

The Snow Shoveling program is in its ninth year of connecting residents with volunteers. The success of this program will continue to benefit seniors and those with disabilities along and show the great volunteer spirit that thrives in Evanston.
