Brick Mayor John Ducey said this week that the township is still seeking volunteers to help clear snow from the homes of elderly and disabled residents this winter.
Ducey’s “Snow Corps”program enlists volunteers who are willing to help their fellow Brick residents clear walkways and driveways of residents who would not normally be able to do so themselves, and are unlikely to be able to afford professional snow removal.
“If you’re able-bodied and able to devote some of your time, our senior citizens could really use your help,” said Councilwoman Marianna Pontoriero. “The cost of shoveling snow, even for my own mother, is out of her budget.”
Once enough volunteers are in place to make the program feasible, the township will create a list of residents who are seeking help.
Anyone who would like to sign up as a volunteer is being asked to call the township at 732-262-4713 to put their name on the list.
