Snow Shoveling Assistance

If you are a Senior and/or a disabled Niles resident and in need of assistance, please contact the Niles Senior Center at (847) 588-8420 to register.  By registering for the program, we will do our best to match you up with an available volunteer within your neighborhood.  Volunteers will be asked to remove snow from public walkways and front sidewalks.  After the conclusion of a 3" or greater snowfall, volunteers will visit their assigned home within 48 hours to remove snow.

To volunteer for the program, please complete a Volunteer Application by clicking on the link above  If you are interested in learning more about these volunteer opportunities, please call Jaymi at 847-588-8420.
