South Shore Neighbors Launch Mutual Aid Effort To Shovel Snow, Deliver Food To People In Need (NNA) by Maxwell, Block Club Chicago Feb 17, 2021

SOUTH SHORE — South Shore residents in need of snow shoveling and other essential supplies can register for help through a new mutual aid effort.

The Neighborhood Network Alliance will send out volunteers throughout the week to help shovel snow following a historic winter storm that dumped as much as 18 inches of snow on Chicago between Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning. The nonprofit will also coordinate donation and delivery of food and supplies.

Volunteers are needed to deliver food, answer the South Shore Blizzard Dig-Out hotline and to coordinate other volunteers.

To register for help, volunteer or donate supplies, click here.

Residents can also call 773-609-3001 or send an email to with questions or donations.

The Neighborhood Network Alliance helped organize a similar effort last summer in an immediate response to the civil unrest over the police killing of George Floyd. Crews of neighbors cleared glass and debris along 71st Street and other South Side locations.
