Like the past years, we’re offering free snow shoveling help for the folks who need them. We know many of our neighbors, especially the elderly and disabled ones, often get stuck in their homes during this season and need our serious help.
If you or anyone you know who may need such help, please feel free to give me a call (301-659-6295) or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to get some volunteers throughout the snow season to help out the needy folks.
Also, if you’d like to volunteer in this, please let us know. The experience you’ll get is very rewarding.

City’s Director of Public Works Robert goes over the how-to’s, tips and more for when the leaf collection trucks come to your neighborhood. Please watch the video below. For more information about curbside leaf collection, visit www.collegeparkmd.gov/specialcollections#curbsideleaf.
Please check your curbs and remove any piles of leaves that have gone off the curb into the flow line of the gutter. This will help prevent leaves from clogging stormdrains. For updates regarding this weekend’s weather, visit weather.gov.
