Dozens of Buffalo Bills fans are coming to the organization’s aid in making New Era Field safe as possible for fans ahead of Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins. 

They are shoveling about 2 feet of snow from the stadiums onto the field. Heavy equipment on the field is picking it up and loading it onto dump trucks. 

The shoveling are earning $11 dollars an hour, getting feed hot meals, and tickets to Sunday’s game. 

More snow and colder temps are on the way. Andy Major, Vice President of Operations and Guest Experience with the Buffalo Bills doesn't expect the stadium to be snow free by Sunday. He said the goal is to make it safe and fun for the teams and fans. 

“It takes a lot of people, a lot of help, and we can’t thank our partners enough,” Major said. 

 More snow shovelers are needed at New Era Field. 

The Buffalo Bills and Jani-King are asking anyone age 18 and over interested in shoveling snow to come over to the stadium.
* Your own shovel (if you forget the stadium will have some on-site).
* Proper ID (driver's license or a state ID).
* Warmly-dressed self.
Pay is $11 per hour, and lunch and dinner breaks will be provided throughout the shift in a comfortable warming area.

Also, those who work a four-hour shift or longer will get a free ticket to the game. All shifts will end at 8:00 p.m.
Shovelers can enter off Abbot Road just north of the Team Store and go to the Jani-King office trailer east of Parking Lot 6 to register to work.
