Volunteers Create Brigade to Shovel Milford Sidewalks

    Milford residents arrive to help out with the shovel brigade.

    Milford, like towns across the state, has been dealing with a massive amount of snow since last weekend.

    To make more progress, local Milford volunteers are organizing a city-wide shovel brigade to help neighbors clear residential sidewalks.

    They are asking all able-bodied men and women willing to volunteer to shovel to meet at 9 a.m. on Friday behind the Milford Public Library at the Fowler Field parking lot with their shovels.

    Maps of areas needing clearing will be distributed to volunteer teams.

    Volunteers from Milford’s police, fire and other city departments, as well as local Boy Scout, local sports teams, and community organizations will be on hand.
