Help a senior stay safe this winter in North Minneapolis by shoveling or blowing snow!

At Senior Community Services, we help seniors stay in their homes by providing assistance with outdoor chores they are unable to do themselves. Seniors are especially at risk for COVID-19 so we need your help to keep seniors safe at home.

Ice and snow are a real hazard for seniors, especially those with mobility issues. Help keep a senior safe by clearing a driveway and walk for someone!

Volunteers must be 16 years or older and commit to the full season. Typically volunteers are assigned to one senior in their area. Whenever there is a 2 inch or more snow fall, they have 24 hours to shovel or blow the snow for their senior.

We welcome individuals, small groups, and families with kids 13 and older.

Get to know someone new and develop a relationship with a senior in your community and serve in a meaningful way this winter!
