CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - The nonprofit group responsible for bringing together dozens of volunteers in December to shovel snow for strangers is asking for help again.

My Block, My Hood, My City is asking volunteers to meet in the 8900 block of Yates at 11:30 a.m. today, according to a post on the group's Facebook page.

"I'm bringing 10 shovels and 10 Hoodies!!" the post reads. "Let's create a better, more interconnected City by doing something simple on the block."
