With the record setting winter weather we have had so far this year and the winter storm on its way, there are people in our community who need our helping digging out from the snow and ice surrounding their homes. A local company has created a website to connect those residents in need with other people who can lend a helping hand.

The website is called Shovel Up Boise and is completely charity based. Joe Egbert, who came up with idea, said it came to him when he was shoveling his own house.

He knew there had to people who needed help and just didn’t know how to get it.
