Blackfalds FCSS seeks snow angel volunteers

BLACKFALDS – Blackfalds currently has seven residents on its Snow Angel Program waiting for volunteers.

Snow Angels are individuals who help shovel the driveway/walkways of those who are unable to do so during the winter months. This program encourages neighbours to help neighbours and build a strong, more connected community.

The Snow Angel Program is a volunteer service by people who are able to commit to remove snow from a Blackfalds resident’s driveway and/or walkway who may be impeded or incapable to do so throughout the winter season.

As a Snow Angel you are committed to the same resident throughout the season and may adopt more than one driveway if desired.

Snow should be removed within 48 hours of every snowfall.

Snow Angels are required to submit a Criminal Record Check and a Vulnerable Sector Check.

Blackfalds residents are eligible to have a snow angel help them when they meet the following criteria: 1) Have a temporary or permanent condition or disability; 2) Have no other capable members residing in your home or neighbourhood. Interested senior residents in need of the program can contact Blackfalds FCSS to be matched with a Snow Angel in their neighbourhood.
