A perfect example of how amazing our volunteers are came from a winter snowfall event involving a retired couple with health-related limitations. Helping Hands was contacted by their son who lives out of town. Through the Snow Helper Program the volunteer kept the snow shovelled, even though the snow event lasted for several days.

The couple and their son both called to thank Helping Hands. This Snow Helper volunteer not only provided snow removal, but also formed a lasting friendship with the senior couple, helping to fight social isolation for everyone involved that winter.
