If anyone else has been helped by the service provided, please leave a comment below.
UPDATE 11:48AM For Those Who Have Responded, Let me know if you haven’t been contacted, more shovelers are now becoming available. I’ll send out more contacts if you haven’t been contacted.
So far so good!
UPDATE 5:41AM: So far we’ve had a ton of people respond that they need shoveling and only two Gloucester folks and no Rockport or Magnolia people looking to shovel.
I’m thinking there’s plenty of money to be made, a couple of young teens could probably make enough to buy an XBOX. C’mon youth of Gloucester, show me you’re willing to work. Fill in the form, there’s plenty of folks that would gladly fork over some dough.
I’m gonna try something here. Not sure if it’s going to work out but I’m going to give it a shot.
Here’s the idea-
With the impending snow storm there’s got to be a lot of folks at the end of their rope as far as shoveling goes.
Me being one of them.
But I imagine there’s lots of teens that will be out of school and able to shovel. When I was a kid, that’s what kids did. We shoveled and were rewarded with money.
My buddies and I would roam the neighborhood looking for folks that wanted to be shoveled out.
I’m not hiring kids and not going to negotiate prices but I’ll leave a form here for people interested in shoveling and for folks interested in getting people to them to shovel out their joint.
Then I’ll relay the contact information based on neighborhoods to the shovelers, they can contact the people that want to be shoveled, y’all can talk and potentially work something out.
I don’t know if this is a great idea or not but I know people are desperate and desperate times call for people trying to connect the dots. Right now there doesn’t seem to be much dot connecting. Hopefully teens or people looking for some extra pocket money can get out of the house and help some elders who could use it.
If Interested Fill Out This Form and Select Shoveler Or Need To Be Shoveled –
Again, I am not taking responsibility for the job anyone does or doesn’t do, I’m not taking responsibility for back injuries or if your kid gets run over. I’m merely trying to help people help people. I have nothing to gain from this.
