GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- As frightening as it may sound, winter isn't too far around the corner. While that means holiday cheer, festive decorations and warm nights by the fire, it also can bring snow, sleet and ice. That's why almost 25 years ago, Town Supervisor Paul Feiner founded the Snow Angels.
The Snow Angel program was created to help shovel the driveways and walkways of senior citizens and disabled residents who can't do the work themselves. Many beneficiaries are frail, living on fixed incomes and unable to leave their homes in the event of a blizzard.
Residents often don't need their entire driveway shoveled, rather only need a path cleared so someone can bring them food or help them in the event of a medical emergency. Some Greenburgh residents can pay the snow angels while others cannot.
The Snow Angels are looking for a volunteer or group of volunteers to help coordinate the snow removal program this winter.The coordinator will receive a list of the names of volunteers who helped in past years and the names of those who sought and received assistance. In addition, they will be provided with a roster of new volunteers for the upcoming winter, and the names of those who seek help this coming season. The volunteer coordinator will help us prioritize the list, with those who are most deserving coming first.
If you would like to be part of the Snow Angels coordinating committee please advise Town Supervisor Paul Feiner at firstname.lastname@example.org
