Two years ago, the JERSEY CITY DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WORKS launched JC SHOVELS, a volunteer snow-shoveling initiative for seniors in need.
Thanks to volunteers, JC SHOVELS cleared snow for 180 seniors during the historic blizzard of January 2016. Earlier this year, the organization served 240 seniors.
If you'd like to clear the way for local seniors to get around in snowy weather, sign up HERE. High-school students should note that satisfactory participation counts toward community-service requirements.
