Sand Buckets for Seniors

  • October 17, 2018

For the 5th year in a row, Auburn Public Works is proud to offer "Sand Buckets for Seniors!" Through this program, APW employees provide (and deliver) a free bucket full of sand for senior citizens, who use this sand on their walkways, steps & driveways to make them safer during the snowy/icy winter months.

This very special program is made possible through the generous support of The Home Depot and Lowe's Home Improvement, who are proud to partner with APW as we reach out to local seniors to show them that their community cares.

“This program is a way for the City to show our appreciation and respect for the seniors in our community, and to help keep them safe,” said Public Works Director Dan Goyette. “Our employees really enjoy connecting with residents in this way.”

Auburn homeowners who are 65 and older and wish to receive a free bucket of sand to use on their steps and walkways should contact Auburn Public Works by November 2nd to enroll: 207-333-6670. Buckets will be delivered beginning on November 12th.
