Submitted by the City of Evanston
The City of Evanston is once again offering its Snow Shoveling Program this winter to connect older adult residents and persons with disabilities with volunteers who are offering free snow shoveling services.
Those seeking assistance or who would like to volunteer are encouraged to sign up at cityofevanston.org/shoveling. Volunteers are needed now more than ever for the entire 2022-23 winter snow season.
How it works
Evanston residents who request assistance for snow shoveling services will be provided with a list of available volunteers in their area. Residents will be responsible for contacting volunteers from the provided list and for scheduling their services. Volunteers are responsible for completing the work or notifying the resident if they are unable to complete the work. This program is a free service and there should be no exchange of money and/or goods.
The city is seeking individuals who are willing to help shovel sidewalks and driveways for older adults and persons with disabilities. Volunteer contact information will be provided to residents who are unable to shovel snow. Those willing to volunteer their time should fill out the Snow Shoveler Volunteer Intake Form or call/text 847-448-4311.
Register for assistance
Older adults or persons with disabilities can register for the program by calling/texting 847-448-4311 or completing the Request for Snow Shoveling Assistance Form.
