Chicago is strongest when people, government and business work together in the face of adversity, challenges, and even Mother Nature. Chicago Shovels is a tool to help connect the public with City winter resources and empower neighbors to come together to help Chicago navigate winter.
Last winter, The Mayor's Office unveiled Chicago Shovels, an interactive website designed for residents to access information and lend a hand in snow-clearing efforts. At chicagoshovels.org, people can see the locations of snow plows in real-time and sign up for Snow Corps to help the city's most vulnerable citizens by shoveling their walkways.
Snow Corps, part of Chicago Shovels, is the program that connects volunteers with residents in need of snow removal. The response from volunteers was strong last winter and this year we'd like to help empower snow efforts in our ward. Together, we can ensure that each and every Chicagoan who is in need can have access to walking and transit.
