All helpful Newburyport residents – young and old – are asked to step up as winter weather approaches! Our senior citizens and disabled residents of every age – need help with snow removal. Newburyport city ordinance requires cleared sidewalks within 24 hours of the end of a snowstorm. Many residents need help with the removal. Others depend on the safe daily arrival of home care workers and Meals On Wheels delivery drivers. Everyone who helps clear the snow from driveways/walkways of those who can’t do it for themselves are “Local Heros”. Be a Hero – Help an Elder/Disabled!
Many elders are willing and able to pay for this service. They just need to know that a hero is out there to take care of the snow when it falls. Everyone who wants to join the ranks of 2017 Snow Heros, should sign up by calling the Newburyport Council on Aging at 978-462-0430. Their names will be given out to the many senior/disabled residents who reach out to the COA for help to find the service they need.
