The Fairfield Senior Center announced a new program to connect seniors with student snow shovelers.

Fairfield dodged the weather bullet Mother Nature fired at Buffalo this week, but the unfortunate city’s six-plus feet of snowfall serves as a reminder that winter is most definitely on its way.

And just in time, Fairfield Senior Center Director of Human Services Terry Giegengack has announced a new program sponsored by the center, called “Shoveling for Seniors.”

The program will connect senior citizens in need of shoveling with high school students, scouts and youth group members looking for community service projects or paid work.

For teenagers seeking payment for their services, the Senior Center is suggesting a $10-per-hour rate, although it’s up to shovelers and residents to negotiate their own terms.

Interested students should call the Senior Center at (203) 256-3166.
