Snow Busters

The city of Aurora’s Snow Busters program pairs volunteers inSnow Buuster's logo the community with neighbors who live within three miles of them with limited financial resources or are incapable of shoveling their sidewalk after a snowfall due to age, disability or other conditions.

Volunteer with Snow Busters

Volunteers commit to helping one person for one snow season. This is a great volunteer project for families, church groups, scout troops, and other groups.

To volunteer as a Snow Buster, you must: 

  • Commit to assisting the resident in need for an entire snow season, beginning in the fall and ending in the spring

  • Shovel the public sidewalk of the resident within 24 hours of a snowfall of two (2) inches or more

  • Be 14 years of age or older (youth 14 and 15 years old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian)

  • Pass a background check

The Snow Busters program is not set up to send volunteers on demand to those needing assistance. There is no guarantee that you will be matched.

Volunteers will be gifted a snow shovel, while supplies last, for volunteering! Thank you to the generosity of local sponsors for donating the shovels: 

  • Lowes, 1701 Havana St. 
  • The Home Depot, 3475 N. Salida Court
