Come and find out more information regarding the snow angels program!
We are looking for Snow Angel volunteers throughout the City of Hamilton to help clear snow for eligible seniors and persons with disabilities. If you have the time and physical ability to shovel snow, we can match you with someone in your neighbourhood that needs the support.
Volunteers are required to:
• Clear snow from the sidewalk and provide an accessible path from their door to the sidewalk;
• Clear the windrow – the pile of snow left behind at the foot of the driveway after the snow plow clears the road;
• Clear the snow within 24 hours of a minimum 3cm snowfall.
Becoming a Snow Angel is a great way for families and friends to spend time together and for high school students to obtain some community service hours. Consider volunteering as a pair, group or team which allows for more flexibility while still maintaining a strong level of client support. Volunteers must be 14 or older, reliable and physically able to participate in snow removal.
New Snow Angel volunteers will receive winter wear courtesy of Mark’s including a warm winter hat, gloves and thermal socks. Matched Snow Angel volunteers will be invited to a volunteer appreciation event in the spring as our way of saying “thanks!”. Our Snow Angel clients are incredibly grateful for your support as it allows them and their visitors safe passage to and from their homes.
Thank you for your consideration and support!
