Volunteers needed to shovel out needy neighbors following snowfalls

Each winter, the city of Aurora receives numerous requests for help from residents incapable of shoveling after a snowfall.

To support these citizens, the city is actively recruiting volunteers to participate in the city's Snow Busters program, now in its fourth snow season.

Snow Busters pairs volunteers with people who live near them, have limited financial resources, and are elderly or have disabilities. The volunteer only needs to commit to helping one person for one snow season.

“We need volunteers situated throughout the city to really make this program successful,” said Aurora Volunteer Center director Susan Everett.

To volunteer to help a neighbor in need, apply online at or call 303-739-7401 for more information.
