Mayor John G. Ducey is seeking volunteers for the town’s Snow Corps program. Volunteers will help senior and disabled citizens by removing snow from their walkways, driveways and sidewalks.
“For many older and disabled residents, snow removal is a nearly impossible task,” said Mayor Ducey. “The Snow Corps was created to help these residents while giving people the chance to give back to the community.”
The Brick Township Snow Corps was started by Mayor Ducey in 2016. The town is seeking volunteers ages 16 and over to provide their services during the winter. Volunteers will shovel the walkways, driveways and sidewalks (if necessary) of senior citizens and disabled residents who do not have the physical or financial means to have this done. Volunteers will need to have their own snow removal equipment.
“Many of our older residents are on fixed incomes and do not have the money to hire a service to clear their driveway and may not have loved ones nearby to assist,” said Mayor Ducey. “These are the types of residents that we have in mind for this program.”
Mayor Ducey is looking for volunteers from all sections of town. “Volunteers will be assigned to homes as near their own residences as possible. We do not want to have our volunteers driving all over town during snow removal. That is why it is important for us to get volunteers from throughout the community.”
