Record cold temperatures and mountains of snow last year made many of our sidewalks and bus stops inaccessible for weeks at a time. This year, before winter tightens its icy grip, Reconnect Rochester would like to invite you to help us defend our streets by taking part in The Great Rochester Snow Down .
Every other Saturday from January 9 – March 6, volunteers from Reconnect Rochester and Flower City AmeriCorps will gather together along one major avenue in our area to clear snow from bus stops and crosswalks…
Saturday, January 9, 10am – 2pm
One team will meet at Union Street…
Another team will meet at Canterbury Road…
We will shovel until we meet in the middle.
Grab your shovel and RSVP on Facebook . If you don’t have a shovel, we’ll share.*
**If there is no snow we will clean up litter instead. Bring a trash bag instead of a shovel.**
And if you can’t join us that day, you can join us in spirit. Snap a photo of you and your friends shoveling any public sidewalk or bus stop and post it to social media using #RocSnowDown .
