Description:

Snow Angels are needed to shovel snow for seniors, disabled persons

Volunteer this winter to help a senior or disabled person remove snow from walkways. Snow Angels matches neighbors with neighbors to shovel the walks of those who are unable to do this on their own.

Volunteers impact lives in the region by ensuring our more vulnerable neighbors continue to have access to essential services such as home-delivered meals and medications during the harsh winter months. Volunteers are needed in each neighborhood of Allegheny County. Please register at http://alleghenysnowangels.org/ or call 412-863-5939. Seniors who need a volunteer to shovel snow can also call this number.

Shovels and salt are now available for pickup for volunteers who request them at the Citiparks warehouse located at 6300 A.V.R.R. (just past the 62nd street bridge). Volunteers may also request safety vests, as needed.

Open Your Heart to a Senior needs volunteers year round and countywide

Volunteers are needed countywide to help seniors remain independent and stay safe in their homes. United Way’s Open Your Heart to a Senior initiative now has several nonprofit partners in Allegheny County to provide volunteer services to seniors. Volunteers can deliver meals, take seniors to appointments or the grocery store, help at senior center and much more. Please attend an upcoming information session to find out more.
