PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) _ The state's center for volunteerism and service is looking for volunteers to help dig out elderly and disabled residents after the storm.

Serve Rhode Island is signing up volunteers across the state to shovel snow and remove ice after the snowstorm expected to begin Tuesday afternoon. Between six and 10 inches are expected.

Volunteers are asked to provide their own snow and ice removal tools.

Those who need assistance with shoveling can call the United Way's 211 help line.

During the last storm earlier this month, 35 Serve Rhode Island volunteers shoveled out 66 elderly and disabled residents.
