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.

Here are the top 10 questions to ask yourself and your neighbors before the storm:
A massive snow storm is expected to hit Boston this Friday and dump 1 to 2 feet of snow!
While snow storms can be fun, they can also cause a lot hardship for our elderly, disabled, and sick neighbors as snow makes it very difficult to for them to get basics such as food, medicine, and getting around town.
