Snow Removal Help

Do you need help removing snow from your sidewalk and driveway? A number of resources have been provided to address the needs of snow removal for seniors.

Hiring Snow Removal Service
Some seniors prefer to pay for snow removal service, but finding someone may be difficult. The Prime Time Seniors' Program contacts neighborhood associations to ask for referrals for neighborhood youth who provide this service for a nominal fee and/or neighbors who are willing to volunteer in this capacity. Please call Prime Time at  (517) 337-1113 to learn more.

Important Hire a Spartan Update
For those of you who have previously used Hire a Spartan services, here is an important update. Those services are now accessed through a program called Handshake. Seniors cannot post jobs on Handshake directly, but should email information about the job to hireaspartan@csp.msu.edu.  Your job will be posted to Handshake and linked to your email address. Interested students will email you about your job. Questions? Talk to Marcia in the Prime Time office.
