Sign up to shovel snow, get help with shoveling

Hinsdale once again is offering is snow shoveling program to connect residents in need with residents seeking ways to volunteer and contribute to their community.

Individuals looking to give back, or who are seeking community service/volunteer hours are encouraged to complete the application on the village website at Contact information of participating individuals will be shared with residents in need of snow shoveling assistance. Residents will contact the volunteers directly when assistance is needed. The volunteer is responsible for snow shoveling or notifying the resident if they are unable to complete the work.

Residents seeking to join the program are encouraged to fill out the snow shoveling referrals request form. Once registered for the program, contact information of participating volunteers will be supplied. The resident is responsible for contacting the volunteer, and scheduling a time for shoveling. This is a volunteer service and there is no requirement to exchange money and/or goods. However, any remuneration would be worked out between the parties.

The village does not do background checks on any of the participating volunteers, seniors citizens or persons with disabilities. Both parties should conduct their own interview and/or reference check if desired before signing on with a particular client or volunteer.
