Be a Snow Angel this winter and help a neighbour
Published 3:23 PST, Tue November 7, 2023
The City of Richmond is looking for Snow Angel volunteers this winter season to make a difference and help ensure residents who are elderly, ill or have mobility concerns have an enjoyable and safe winter.
Snow Angels can be individuals, families, students or businesses and can choose the geographic area to work, including their own neighbourhood or any location citywide, and the amount of time to volunteer during snowfall events.
Volunteers will be provided with a shovel, toque and container of ice melt. To learn more about being a Snow Angel volunteer, visit icanhelp.richmond.ca, call 604-247-4453 or email email@example.com.
Residents that would like the services of Snow Angels are asked to apply by Friday, Dec. 1. Applications received after Dec. 1 will be added to a waitlist. To apply, contact the Snow Angels Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 604-247-4453.
The Snow Angels is a volunteer-driven program and activates only when there is an accumulation of three or more centimetres of snow in Richmond. Volunteers will make every effort to help registered residents, however assistance cannot always be guaranteed.
