Winter Warrior Snow Shoveling Program

The Village of Waunakee is pleased to introduce the Winter Warrior Snow Shoveling Program, through the SnowCrew website. The program is designed to facilitate neighbors helping neighbors, to assist our residents in locating volunteers in their neighbor-
hoods to shovel snow from their walkways, sidewalks and driveways.  The SnowCrew website
connects those needing assistance with volunteers willing to help.

Want to Help Out? 

If you or your organization(s) are interested in helping your neighbors this winter, you are encouraged to visit the SnowCrew website ( and register. Residents who are unable to shovel their own property will also register on the SnowCrew website. When they request assistance, an icon will show up on a map of Waunakee allowing volunteers to locate those needing assistance in clearing snow. The website also allows volunteers to let other volunteers know where they are helping, avoiding any duplication.

Need Help? 
If you need help shoveling your property this winter, please visit and register.
Once registered, you can post an alert for help on the SnowCrew website. An icon will show up on a map of Waunakee identifying your location, indicating you need assistance. Volunteers who are registered to help will then have an opportunity to provide assistance in clearing snow.

Volunteers who are having trouble registering or residents without internet access may call 608-850-2830 and Village staff will assist with the registration process.

For more information, please contact Administrative Intern Ben John at or by telephone phone at 608-850-2830.

The Village is pleased to promote the SnowCrew system; however this system is independent of the Village. The Village cannot ensure success in using the system for either those needing help or those volunteering to help. As a reminder, it is the sole responsibility of each individual property owner to complete snow removal in accordance with Village ordinances.
