Northeastern students dig in, shovel neighborhood spaces
Boston Globe - 02/12/2015
As Mayor Martin J. Walsh looked for help from the National Guard and equipment from out-of-state to remove the snow on the ground, students from Northeastern University decided to pitch in the old-fashioned way: with shovels.
University officials announced Thursday that they special ordered 200 shovels after hearing from students who wanted to help clear snow around campus and in nearby neighborhoods.
“We are trying to mobilize, and have students come together on this,” said Hilary Sullivan, associate director for service and community partnerships at Northeastern.
