Man Asked For 10 Volunteers To Shovel Snow In Chicago, And Over 100 People Decided To Help
February 14, 2018
It is a particularly snowy time in Chicago. Last week, a winter storm warning was issued. This was in preparation for what is recorded to be the biggest storm front of the season.
On Friday, all public schools were closed, and parents advised to keep their children indoors. Other institutions, including Northern Illinois University, were also shut down.
The snow affected public transportation, with coverage ranging between 3 to 6 inches in various areas of the state. Furthermore, residents were advised to stock up on provisions as there was no saying exactly how long the storm would last.
Helping the seniors
On Friday, Jahmal Cole was bombarded by messages from elderly residents in his Chatham neighborhood. They all needed assistance during the storm, but most of them had been snowed in. So, Jahmal sent out a message of his own, asking for 10 volunteers to join him shoveling snow on Saturday.
