Snow Angels Still Needed in Newtown Township
Winter snowfall can leave many elderly and those with physical disabilities trapped in their homes, isolated and afraid ambulances and vital emergency services might be delayed in reaching them. The Township’s solution was the creation of the Newtown Township Snow Angels, a program designed to help elderly or disabled Newtown Township residents clear snow from their driveways and sidewalks during winter storms. Volunteers are asked to adopt at least one resident for the entire winter. (Volunteers under the age of 18 must have parental permission).Kathy Pawlenko 215- 968-2800 ext. 272 or email kathyp@newtownpa.gov
