This year we have made two awesome advancements and will be introducing phase 1 of SnowCrew.org in a couple of weeks.
What’s new so far this…Continue

Here is the list of elderly, disabled, and sick/injured neighbors who need your helping digging out this morning. By digging them out, you enable them to go about their lives and do essential things like get to the food store, pharmacy, and doctors office.

We'd appreciate it if you took a couple moments to tell us what tell what you think is working well about SnowCrew and where we need to focus our attention to make it better.
Here is an idea of the kind of feedback we are looking for:
We've made awesome progress today. In total 26 neighbors have been dug out. 8 More still need help, 2 of which are out of state (we'll help anyone who asks).

There are many elderly and disabled neighbors who still need our help. In total, together we/SnowCrew have dug out 11 neighbors but there all these folks below still need out help.
Please pitch in where you can. Your help give these neighbors freedom, access to food and medicine, and greatly reduces their anxiety.
Today was a day many of us will remember for some time. In addition to digging yourselves out, many of you opted to help dig out your neighbors in need through SnowCrew.
In total, there have been 26 requests for assistance shoveling. Today, 9 homes/cars were dug out, 2 are still underway, and 16 others still need to be shoveled.
I want to give a special shot out to Jen Barnes, from HolonDesign.com who…Continue
