How to Help

Snow Removal Signup

Snow Removal Signup

We are looking for volunteers to sign up for snow shoveling. On the sign up sheet down below, the dates listed are the start of the week you would be signing up for. For example, if you sign up for November 21st, you would be in charge of shoveling until November 27th. Please include your phone number so the shelter can contact you if shoveling isn't required or if something changes. We look forward to your help!
