Even though today, when this item posts, the forecast in Louisburg is for a high of 94 degrees, winter weather will soon be upon us. That means it’s time for Snow Buddies in Louisburg!
Snow Buddies is a volunteer program that matches our city’s senior citizens or those who may have a disability and are unable to shovel snow from their sidewalks with a volunteer who is able to assist with snow shoveling.
The program also asks for volunteers to shovel a path from the front door to the sidewalk or street/end of driveway.
To qualify, you must be a senior citizen or have a disability that makes it difficult to shovel snow. You must also own your home or live in a single-family residence.
Those who would like to volunteer are asked to commit for the entire winter season and to shovel any sidewalk on the property as well as the path from the front door to the street/sidewalk. Volunteers are not expected to shovel the entire driveway.
You may sign up for Snow Buddies on the City’s website under the “Volunteer” section. If you are unable to sign up online, please call City Hall at 913-837-2324. The program is on a first-come, first-served basis and is limited to the number of volunteer shovelers who participate in the program. The City administers the program.
