Snow Crew prepares to help disabled, elderly in second snowstorm
ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- The Albemarle High School Rowing team is continuing to give back to the community through its free community service, Snow Crew.
The team of 24 will be shoveling the driveways of the elderly and disabled for free. Members served 10 residents during the last storm and they anticipate a bigger demand for this next storm.
As of Sunday afternoon, they already had 40 requests. Snow Crew member Drew Lambert said everyone is grateful for the help.
Thinking back to shoveling snow last time, Lambert recalled a woman they helped.
“She was extremely appreciative,” Lambert said. “In a previous snowstorm she had tried to shovel her own driveway and she ended up in the hospital with a collapsed lung and she was so thankful.”
