In total, Where to Turn "has over 2,500 seniors requesting snow shoveling assistance," according to Dennis McKeon, the executive director of the organization.
"If you are a student in the seventh grade or higher we will find you a senior within walking distance of your home," McKeon stated. "You commit to shovel their sidewalk and the path to their front door each time it snows and you will receive 10 hours of community service credit at the end of the winter."
And, as McKeon concludes, "just the fact that they know there's somebody out there who is going to help them out makes a big difference in their lives,"
If you are senior citizen, age 65 and older, who needs your snow shoveled or a student or resident who wants to volunteer, sign up for the snow shoveling program at www.where-to-turn.org, or call 718-966-6531.
