City Pairs Helpers with Seniors

Each winter the Rockville Senior Center looks for ways to help older Rockville residents with snow removal. If you’re handy with a shovel and don’t mind digging out an extra driveway or clearing a walkway or two, you can sign up and volunteer for the program.

The senior center’s home maintenance coordinator organizes the program and can connect you with neighbors in need near your home. What better way to celebrate the season of selfless giving?

To sign up to volunteer or to request snow-shoveling assistance, email Jerry Jones at jjones@rockvillemd.gov, call him at 240-314-8819 or call the Senior Center Support Services office at 240-314-8810.

To sign up for assistance or volunteer online, visit www.rockvillemd.gov/snowshoveling.
