Project Pitch: Elder Care Shoveling
Elder Care Shoveling
Infrastructure and Community.
How might we better facilitate communication between the City of Boston and certified volunteers to shovel snow for elders?
PROPOSED SOLUTION / BRIEF DESCRIPTION
The City of Boston has a corps of certified volunteers who will be available to help shovel out walkways, parking lots, and sidewalks around elder housing in the case of a huge snowstorm. We don’t however, have a good way of viewing the list of volunteers (including their availability, contact information, and area of coverage) or of efficiently contacting them in the case of an emergency. One possible way to do this would be to build an app or other messaging system that would let us tell them when they are needed along with instructions on how to proceed once called.
