Winter Assistance for Neighbors

Help would be appreciated if anyone lives near an elderly or disabled person to help clear their walkway, driveway, or car because many cannot afford to hire someone. Let us help one another get through this winter. Please call the Council on Aging if you can assist - 781-293-7313.
