The snow is light and fluffy. There’s less of it than everyone expected. But it’s still a lot to contend with — particularly if you’re elderly or disabled.
Members of the Staples High School boys soccer team have volunteered to help. With school canceled, they’re available to shovel out folks who can’t do it themselves (or have no able-bodied kids of their own).
Because many of them can’t drive — or their parents don’t want them to — the offer is limited to neighborhoods where players live. So there are no promises that a match can be made.
But if you’d like a soccer player to help, email email@example.com. I’ll do the best I can to send a strong teenager.
NOTE: Any other Westport youngsters (or older!) willing to volunteer are welcome to join in this community effort too. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org, and tell me where you live. I’ll add you to the list of volunteer shovelers!
