The Mayor’s Office on Volunteerism is seeking volunteers from across the District to join the 2013-2014 Citizen Snow Team
that will clear sidewalks of elderly and disabled residents after it
snows. The District requires property owners (residential and
commercial) to clear the sidewalks surrounding their property within
24-hours after a snowfall. Even a dusting of snow can be too much for
elderly or disabled residents to shovel. Volunteer today to make winter a little easier on everyone.
Willing to assist those in need, click here to register.
