AMESBURY, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — A local pot shop owner offered to shovel out Amesbury and Haverhill residents’ cars from the snow, as part of their new ‘Snow Angels’ program.

Robert DiFazio owns two pot shops — one in Amesbury and one in Haverhill. He, along with his Director of Business Development Scott Winters, spend Monday digging people out who needed it.

Winters said that a person from a nearby senior center put together the idea, and that “he was looking for volunteers to come out and shovel and to help seniors out.”

“I was going to do this anyway. And he was reaching out and I was reaching in and here we are with this project,” Winters said.

DiFazio said the goal was to help the elderly and veterans. He’s a veteran of the Navy, himself.

Winters and DiFazio are also donating money to veteran organizations to help buy and build housing.
