Pawtucket Announces Youth to Senior Snow Shoveling Program

Pawtucket – Mayor Donald R. Grebien and the Pawtucket City Council have announced that Pawtucket’s Youth to Senior Shoveling Program is now accepting requests from Pawtucket seniors to be placed on the list to be matched with a snow shoveling volunteer for this winter.

Through this program, youth volunteers donate their time and effort to help elderly residents of Pawtucket 65 and older who are unable to shovel snow during the winter months. Youth are paired with seniors in their neighborhood and help them by shoveling their stairs, a path to their front door, and sidewalks (driveways not required).

This volunteer work can be counted towards community service hours. A celebration will be held at the end of the winter.

Seniors interested in receiving shoveling assistance or students interested in volunteering can contact Mayor Grebien’s office by calling 401-728-0500 Ext. 281 or by emailing

Seniors should note that this volunteer-based service is not guaranteed, even if they called in early and were placed on the list. The service is contingent upon the availability of youth volunteers in the specific neighborhood where senior residents have applied. It is also important for seniors to note that if they were on the list last year, they must reapply to be placed on the list again this year. The City of Pawtucket is committed to serving as many residents as possible through this initiative, and thanks all volunteers for serving the community.

If you are a youth or a parent/guardian of a youth that is interested in participating in the program, please contact Mayor Grebien’s office.
