Snow Angel Program

For some members of our community, particularly seniors, moving snow is a difficult task. Snow Angels will respond to requests made to the City by those who are unable to shovel their own adjacent City sidewalk due to physical disabilities or restrictions.

Who Can Volunteer as a Snow Angel?

The Snow Angels can be anyone who wishes to volunteer to help make our City's sidewalks safer for those in need. Once the volunteer screening process has been completed, the City staff will provide training and equipment to Snow Angel Volunteers to assist qualified, pre-approved residents that they are matched with.
