We just received this release from Milford City Hall:
A city-wide “Shovel Brigade” is being organized by local Milford volunteers to help our neighbors clear residential sidewalks.
All able-bodied men and women willing to volunteer to shovel are asked to meet Friday, Feb. 15 at 9 a.m., behind the Milford Public Library at the Fowler Field parking lot with their shovels.
Maps depicting areas in need of clearing will be distributed to volunteer teams. As Milford digs-out from this unprecedented, record-setting Blizzard, and as Public Works continues to clear snow from our roadways and public areas, volunteers can help the community by lending a hand in those neighborhoods where help is needed to shovel sidewalks – making it safe for children to walk to their bus stops and homes when schools re-open.
Volunteers from Milford’s Police, Fire and other City departments, as well as local Boy Scout, local sports teams, and community organizations will be on hand.
