Snow removal volunteers needed for seniors

Some Boone County senior citizens need your help with shoveling from their sidewalks and driveways.
The Boone County Council on Aging matches volunteers with seniors to help them remain in their homes with safety and dignity.
Snow packed drive ways make it difficult for home health agencies to get to clients, meals on wheels food deliveries, or pharmacy deliveries.
Organizers also encourage you to check on your neighbors, no matter what their age and lend a helping hand.
BCCA Director Jessica Macy said, â??Some folks may have back injuries. Some people may be disabled. They donâ??t have to be a senior. It could be a single mom who has young children who canâ??t get out there and help. Itâ??s something we can all do as neighbors to check in on each other. We should make sure our neighbors are safe and taken care of.â??
