City looks for volunteer shovel brigade to help clear residential sidewalks

A city-wide shovel brigade is being organized by local Milford volunteers to help neighbors clear residential sidewalks.

All able-bodied men and women willing to volunteer to shovel are asked to meet Friday, February 15, at 9 a.m., behind the Milford Public Library at the Fowler Field parking lot with their shovels.

Maps depicting areas in need of clearing will be distributed to volunteer teams.

As Milford digs out from this unprecedented, record-setting blizzard, and as Public Works continues to clear snow from roadways and public areas, volunteers can help the community by lending a hand in those neighborhoods where help is needed to shovel sidewalks — making it safe for children to walk to their bus stops and homes when schools re-open, city officials said.

Volunteers from Milford's police, fire and other City departments, as well as local Boy Scout, local sports teams, and community organizations will be on hand.
