(KPLR) – St. Louis got a touch of winter this week, but nothing like in Buffalo, where residents are dealing with 6 feet of snow.

But one creative St. Louis Variety Club child came up with an inventive way to help his father shovel their drive-way.

He used his new power wheelchair and a shovel to move the snow.

The wheelchair was paid for by the charity.

This video has gone viral and has had more than 340,000 views.
