CAUTION:  Snow’s already falling sideways before Winter Storm Juno -- scheduled to slam New York City by 1 pm and predicted the worst blizzard in the city’s history -- has even started: Catholic Charities is here to help.

Are you a homebound senior trapped inside by mountains of snow? Catholic Charities, partnering again with the NYC Snow Removal Initiative, can pair you with volunteers to clear your driveway.

Important Precautions:

  • Commuter Heads up:  Metro North and the Long island Rail Road might shut down before Monday’s evening rush, Governor Cuomo warned in a recent statement.
  • Highways could close
  • Check out NYC Hazards: Winter Weather web pages for tips and information about how to prepare.
  • Get updates from the NYC Severe Weather website.
  • Get emergency alerts by signing up for Notify NYC.
