From the Mayor’s Office:
“The winter isn’t letting up and neither are our volunteers! Serve DC is encouraging volunteers from across the District to join the DC Citizen Snow Team! The DC Citizen Snow Team will assist seniors and residents with disabilities with shoveling and snow removal in the event of winter weather.
The District requires property owners (residential and commercial) to clear the sidewalks surrounding their property within 24 hours after a snowfall. Even a dusting of snow can pose a challenge for seniors or individuals with disabilities, which is why we are asking residents to volunteer their services to help keep everyone safe and make the winter a little easier on those in need.
