The City of Highland Park Coordinates Volunteer Snow Shoveling Program for Residents in Need

Seeking low-Income, elderly or disabled residents in need 

The City of Highland Park is coordinating a volunteer snow shoveling program designed to serve low-income elderly and disabled residents of Highland Park and Highwood. Students from Highland Park High School will join other community volunteers to provide qualifying residents snow shoveling assistance.

After snow accumulations of at least 2 inches, residents who are registered in the program may request assistance with shoveling their home’s driveway and walkway. A volunteer team will be contacted and should be able to assist within 48 hours. The registered homeowner or renter will be responsible for providing snow shovels along with ice-melting materials.  Snow blowers are not allowed due to safety issues. 

Volunteers and participating residents will be required to complete City of Highland Park liability waivers. 

For further information about program qualifications, to register for shoveling assistance, or to volunteer to shovel snow for those in need, contact Jennifer Aiello, City of Highland Park Social Services Coordinator at 847.926.1868 or via email at jaiello@cityhpil.com.
