Snow Shoveling Program

Volunteer Snow Shoveling Program

 The City of Highland Park offers a volunteer snow shoveling program designed to serve low income elderly and disabled residents of Highland Park.  After a snowfall of two inches or more, registered individuals may request assistance with shoveling their home’s driveway and walkway; every effort will be made to secure and dispatch a volunteer team to assist within 48 hours. 

 The homeowner is responsible for providing shovels, ice-melting materials, etc. (Snow blowers will not be allowed due to safety issues.) Volunteers and recipients of the program will be required to complete City of Highland Park liability waivers.

Residents interested in receiving assistance through the Volunteer Snow Shoveling Program must be income qualified. To check your qualification and register, or to volunteer, please call Jennifer Aiello, Social Services Coordinator for Senior Services, at 847.432.4110.  

Interested volunteers should review the application and attached COVID-19 guidelines. Applications may be submitted via email to Rachel Trabaris or mailed to:
Highland Park Senior Center
1201 Park Avenue West
Highland Park, IL  60035
Att: Rachel Trabaris
