FALL RIVER, Mass. (WLNE) — The city of Fall River is looking for volunteers to shovel out elderly and disabled people throughout the snowy season.

During each snow storm, the Mayor’s Office receives calls from disabled and elderly people who need assistance shoveling.

At this time, there are not enough volunteers to meet the demand.

A spokesperson for the mayor said signing up is not a commitment, and volunteers will only be called when needed.

Additionally, volunteers can opt to stay local to their own neighborhood.

Anyone interested in volunteering can sign up by filling out a Google form or calling the Mayor’s Office at (508)-324-2600.
