WE NEED HELP: We have many seniors calling the Center asking for help with shoveling/plowing. This is a definite need, and we don’t know how to help except to ask you to check on your neighbors, and if they aren’t cleared out after a snowfall perhaps you or someone you know could help them and clear a path so they can get out of the house and at least get the mail as many seniors get medications via mail. Thanking you in advance for any help you can give!
