Feel Good Friday: Snow Crew making a difference one driveway at a time
ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- Voice mails of gratitude flood the inbox of Snow Crew members after each snowstorm.
"There was one lady who kind of just sat there and was like I can't believe y'all are doing this for me," said Vaya Chhabra, a member of the Albemarle High School rowing team.
The team has been shoveling the driveways of the elderly and disabled as a part of a new community program: Snow Crew.
“You know, no one's really doing what we're doing, especially not for free, so it feels really good,” said Gabriel Duval, another Snow Crew member.
In just the first two storms of the year, the Snow Crew has helped more than 100 residents.
“It's been incredibly powerful to just see the impact that we can have on our community even if it's something as small as shoveling a driveway,” said Chhabra.
The only problem, says creator Drew Lambert, is that the need is so great, it’s hard to keep up with demand.
“It's been a huge response and it's been kind of overwhelming but we're trying our best as possible to fill it,” he said.
The group of 20 is hoping to expand and add more sports teams in the future.
