Volunteer Opportunity

                                         Project Snow Shovel 

Winter is a difficult time for most people to get around, but some have it even harder than others. Imagine trying to get to the doctor, or the grocery store, or even your own mailbox when you can no longer shovel the snow off your front steps. For many seniors in the Champlain Valley, this is a reality they must deal with every winter.

The Champlain Valley Agency on Aging (CVAA) would like to thank all the volunteers who graciously volunteer their time and energy to help shovel walkways and driveways so that seniors can get out of their homes. But these volunteers can only help so many seniors. This year we are expecting even more snow, so we are going to need more volunteers than ever.

We are currently looking for volunteers who are willing to help seniors in Burlington, South Burlington, Winooski, Essex Junction, Colchester, Milton, St. Albans, and Swanton. We may need volunteers in your town soon. If you would like to join the ranks of these winter heroes, please give Bev a call at 800-642-5119.
