Snow-shoveling Volunteers form Part of “Village”
Feburary 12, 2013
Like their neighbors, RosÃ© Saltzman, 80, and her husband, Ira, of West Roxbury, watched the approach of winter storm with anxious anticipation.
Fortunately, one worry was off their shoulders: Thanks to AgeWell West Roxbury, a neighborhood volunteer stood ready to shovel them out, through a program that matches neighbors with seniors who need snow-shoveling help.
They are among the many Boston-area volunteers that stepped up to help neighbors in the aftermath of the blizzard.
