Snow Angels get out their shovels to help fellow Lincolnites

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — A group of Lincolnites got up and moving Thursday morning to help shovel snow for those who can’t.

The Snow Angels program operates through Lincoln Public Works and helps people in need who can’t shovel the snow, oftentimes the elderly or people with disabilities.

Michael Dorton and his wife, Jenna, have been Snow Angels for nine years.

Dorton said despite the bitter cold temperatures, God has given him and his wife the hearts to serve.

“This is something that I can do, and an opportunity to just give back to the community,” he said. “Most of the calls we get are from the elderly population who have given so much to us through their lives. It’s an opportunity to especially give back to them and help them get to their medical appointments or things like that.”
