Josh Elphick shovels it forward-WTNHvideo

Connecticut teens Josh Elphick and Nico Bartelli are following in the boot tracks of the Greenfield Fire Department in Wisconsin that started a #ShovelItForward campaign to rally others to help elderly neighbors dig out after snow storms.

The Waterford teens responded to a plea through the city’s Youth Services Bureau to shovel walkways after a foot of snow fell.

This photo shows Josh clearing a path necessary for a resident’s heating oil to be delivered.

In Canada, the Canadian Tire company has created a dedicated website to share the hashtag and shoveling photos at shovelitforward.ca.
