I want to help bring the community together through helping others in need! This was originally inspired by my parents, who both have problems that could result in shovelling the driveway going wrong, so the responsibility of shovelling falls to me. However, I won't always be there, especially after graduation, so I wanted to make sure the driveway could still be shovelled.

Challenges we ran into
Time constraints were a pretty big issue for me, especially for the amount of work I originally wanted to accomplish

What we learned
Teamwork and time management are incredibly important, especially with a task like this one, which I hadn't been previously exposed to
