The Town of Trumbull recognizes that some of our residents are physically unable to rake their own yards or shovel their driveways and walkways. The Town is pleased to provide assistance to our Senior citizens (65+) and people with disabilities (18+) who could benefit from help offered by our local students who are seeking community service hours.
Seniors in Need of Assistance with Leaf Pickup or Snow Shoveling
When a resident is in need of raking or shoveling, they will contact the Trumbull Senior Center and the Center will contact the volunteer. The volunteer may choose which jobs to accept and can work individually, in pairs, or in a group. Services are limited to outdoor work only. Volunteers are responsible for their own transportation. Once the job is complete, the homeowner will sign the Community Service Form.
The Senior Center is closed to the public. Staff are regularly monitoring the phone lines to assist residents with their needs. If you get our voicemail please be sure to leave a message. We will call you back. For residents needing rides to doctor appointments we are working with GBT for single passenger roundtrip assistance. Please be sure your doctor’s office has not cancelled that appointment before scheduling transportation with us. (203) 452-5199
