With snow in the forecast, the City Public Works and Utilities Department reminds residents that volunteers are still needed to shovel snow for those who are unable to clear their sidewalks and driveways. The Snow Angels program links volunteers willing to shovel snow with residents who need the service. Individuals or organization wishing to volunteer for snow removal as part of the program may sign up online at lincoln.ne.gov (keyword: snow).
Those who need the help can find volunteers near their home online or by calling the Snow Center 402-441-7644 during regular business hours. Due to limited staffing, those needing assistance are asked to wait until after it has snowed to call the Snow Center for assistance.
Aging Partners also has a program to provide snow removal for low-income elders. Funds from the Lincoln Cares donation program are used to pay the workers through the Aging Partners Home Handyman Program. For more information, visit aging.lincoln.ne.gov (click on "housing") or call 402-441-7030.
