Helpful Hoboken Snow Shovelers!

2/27/2010 Update:

More helping hands…

Rory and even Hoboken411 reader Christina helped dig out a few elderly folks yesterday once again (no, the people weren’t buried – just their cars…) Good community help!

12/19/2009:

With the impending Winter Storm we’re in store to get today, one Hoboken411 reader and local merchant is offering volunteer assistance to those in need!

That’s the holiday spirit!

Volunteer Hoboken Snow Shovelers

Helping the elderly with tough winter tasks

Rory, who owns Midtown Authentic, the new handbag and accessory consignment store at 508 5th Street, is banding together with some friends and colleagues to shovel snow for the elderly or disabled. If you need help, or know someone that does, please email him at sales@midtownauthentic.com and he’ll make arrangements. Also, if this gets to be a overwhelming task, they’d like to know if anyone wants to join them in helping the community, just let them know!

Rory adds: “This is not a joke, and if anyone is just lazy and doesn’t want to do it themselves, don’t email us. It’s solely for those who are incapable. It’s a 100% free community service.”

Way to reach out to the community, Rory! Big hat tip!

I was just outside clearing the snow off my car. Then all of a sudden a guy and a girl approached me asking “you want us to shovel you out – free of charge?”. And when I asked them why do they want to do it, he said “because it feels good”. They shoveled me out and they’re such great people. They spent their day shoveling people out today. Their good heartedness is making we want to do the same thing after the next big snow. Thank you again!

Did it have a green blade and wood dowel handle? I saw a broken shovel like that on Garden Street of that description. Those kids are going to get theirs in spades!

yeah plywood, it was a green blade but had a metal striated shaft and plastic handle, thanks for thinking of me, but i am sure there are many busted shovels around town. What goes around comes around right? maybe not today or tomorrow but eventually…

Sure enough. There’s an old saying, usually about beer runs, “you fly, I’ll buy”. If you plan on doing this outreach program again, let me know and a new shovel is on me.

OK, great, dig it. I will forward funds for the shovel via mail to your storefront on 5th unless advised otherwise. I’ll try to send enough that you can get the first class model. Keep up the good work!

If you do not mind, a top of the line shovel itself would be practical instead of money. No need for a bow though, something all around grade A would be appreciated sir. You can drop off at the shop anytime, I am always there. Thanks plywood, happy holidays
