Boston Cares responds to Winter Storm Nemo

Are you looking for a way to get involved with

Winter Storm Nemo recovery?  


Adopt-A-Hydrant is a city volunteer program that engages volunteers in shoveling out hydrants in their neighborhoods.  To claim a hydrant, please follow this link.  Visit the City of Boston to read more about Adopt-A-Hydrant program and check with your local town offices to see if they have a similar program.

Show your work!  Post a photo of your hydrant (before and after shots encouraged!) and post it on the Boston Cares Facebook page, or tag us in your photo on your own page.  If you tweet, tag us @BostonCares.

be a snow angel

Even though the snow is melting, there are still elderly and disabled residents who need help shoveling out their homes, sidewalks and driveways.  The city of Boston is asking for volunteer “Snow Angels” to lend a hand to neighbors with shoveling.  Share your work by posting your photos on the Boston Elderly Community Facebook page.  If you tweet, use #BOSnowAngel.  Also, show Boston Cares some love, and tag us in your photo with @BostonCares!

Adopting Buzz the Hydrant

Boston Cares participated in the Adopt-A-Hydrant program and freed our hydrant, Buzz, from the snowdrift outside of our offices.  View our photo on our Boston Cares Facebook page and post your own!  (When you participate in the program, you get to name your hydrant!)
