Rizzo’s “Snow Angels” Heaven-sent during Blizzard dig-out

0209131336

Mayor Dan Rizzo launched “Snow Angels”, a program that connects willing volunteers with individuals in need of assistance with shovelling their sidewalks, entrances and driveways throughout the winter. The Mayor worked to create this program in the days leading up to the blizzard of this past weekend.

“While winter can be hazardous for everyone here in our City, it can be especially difficult for our elderly and physically disabled residents who may not have the ability or resources to remove snow from their sidewalks, driveways, and walkways”, stated Mayor Rizzo.  Snow Angels aims to help minimize the hardships of snow removal by pairing volunteers with elderly or disabled residents in their neighborhoods who they will assist with snow removal after each snow storm for the winter season.

This program was launched with the assistance of the Revere High School Army JROTC Patriot Battalion under the leadership of Sgt. Major Robert Callender and Major Deborah Bowker during Blizzard Nemo.  The twenty-eight cadets executed “Operation Snow Angel” with precision and expertise providing assistance to over a dozen residents in need.

Any individuals or any groups interested in volunteering and teaming up with the RHS Army JROTC to become a Snow Angel or for those looking for a Snow Angel, please contact the Mayor’s Office at (781) 286-8111 or at revere_mayor@revere.org.
