Fast Facts - More Reasons for Volunteering!

Each year, shoveling snow sends more than 11,000 people to the hospital. While most have orthopedic injuries, 7 percent have cardiac problems, and many of these are heart attacks.

Doctors advise against shoveling if you are older, have heart disease or think you might. “Shoveling snow is hard work,” says Cleveland Clinic cardiovascular surgeon A. Marc Gillinov, MD, co-author of the hit book Heart 411. “People who have coronary artery disease should not perform strenuous shoveling of snow. It can trigger a heart attack.”

The cold temperatures also increase the risk for heart attack because the arteries constrict and this increases blood pressure.

Help a senior by volunteering to shovel driveways, walks in Jersey City

The Jersey Journal

With a predicted winter storm less than 24 hours away, Jersey City officials are looking to bolster the JC Shovels program -- an initiative started last year to connect volunteers with seniors who need their driveways and walks cleared.

The city is looking seeking more volunteers and also asking seniors who need help to also sign up for the program, city spokeswoman Hannah Peterson said.
