Winter Weather Assistance Programs

Program 1:  General Snow Removal Assistance Needed

(Snow removal program for seniors and residents with disabilities)

 High school and college students are needed to assist senior citizen or disabled residents of Elmwood Park to shovel snow during the winter season.  The pay rate for normal snowfall (3 inches or less) is $10.00, which includes sidewalks around the house and stairs. Driveways and garages not included.  Corner lots start at $15.00 and any additional work is negotiable.   In this program, students will be paid by the home owner once the work is completed.

 

 Program 2: Elmwood Park Senior Snow Voucher Program

(Snow removal program for seniors and residents with disabilities)

This program provides assistance to Elmwood Park senior citizen and disabled residents in single family homes after a snow fall of 6 inches or more (Participants will be notified of Voucher Days through a public service phone call activated by the Village to residents).

This program is offered through the Village of Elmwood Park to Senior Citizens and managed by Tina Gordon, the Senior Coordinator.  We are looking for responsible high school and college students to offer their time and services to shovel after heavy amounts of snow falls.  If you are interested in participating, call Tina Gordon with your contact information.   The resident contacts the Students from the Eligibility List compiled by Tina Gordon.  The snow will be removed from the front steps and to clear a path from the home to the street.  Snow shoveling begins 12 to 24 hours following the end of the snowfall. Once snow removal is complete, the resident fills out a voucher and gives it to the student.  The student will then submit the voucher to Ms. Gordon.  The Village of Elmwood Park will issue payment at the end of the month by mail directly to the student.

Thank you for your assistance, we look forward to hearing from you!
