The Olathe city government is still searching for people to volunteer to help shovel snow for residents who can't do it themselves. 

The group, called the snow brigade, helps residents 62-years-old or older or who have disabilities that have registered their need with the city. It's administered by the Olathe Parks and Recreation division. 

Chief communications and marketing officer Cody Kennedy said each year, the group gets between 25 and 30 volunteers. 

"We will certainly take all the volunteers we can get," he said in an emailed statement. 

Volunteers are matched with people who request assistance and are expected to remove snow within 24 or 48 hours of a winter weather event that brings two or more inches. 

If you need help with snow removal this winter and qualify, call 913-971-8566 before Nov. 30 to get on the list. To sign-up to help with the snow brigade, fill out the online application here.
