Do you need help with snow removal?
Would you like to volunteer?
Do you shovel snow for hire?
Lanark’s Snow Shoveling Assistance Program connects senior, disabled, and other special needs* residents with snow shoveling services, both volunteer and for-hire.
Many residents often need assistance in the winter with snow removal from their sidewalks and driveways. Lanark residents can be provided with a list of available volunteers or for-hire shovelers in their area. The resident is responsible for contacting an individual from the list provided them by the city’s volunteer program and for making financial or scheduling arrangements. The volunteer is responsible for completing the task or notifying the resident if they are unable to complete the work.
The success of this program will benefit seniors, those with disabilities, and those with other special circumstances along with showing what a great volunteer spirit there is in Lanark.
