Snow Angels Needed this Season

With the snow having well and truly arrived, we're stepping up our search for Snow Angels this winter. We need Snow Angels this winter to help shovel snow for those who have little to no supports and are not physically or financially capable to remove snow from their premises. Local residents in need of this service register with the Town and are then matched with a registered volunteer. Being a Snow Angel is a great way to give back to your community — and support your neighbours in need. This is a great way to help out in your community! 

Sign up to be a Snow Angel today and—while supplies last—you will receive a complimentary winter kit (toque, scarf and mitts). All active volunteers are entered into a draw at the end of the season to win an iPad Mini.  

Duties

Volunteers must:

  • be physically fit to be able to shovel snow
  • be committed to clearing sidewalk / walkways within 48 hours of a snow fall. Note the snow shovel will be supplied,
  • be able to promote and practice positive relationships with the registered resident the volunteer has been assigned to
  • report to the Community & Social Development Coordinator promptly if unable to commit to your schedule or detained for some reason. 
  • Consider this volunteer opportunity today and fill out the application form here. Applications should be forwarded to Karen Bradbury, Community & Social Development Coordinator, 4943 53 Street, Innisfail. Need more information before signing up? Contact the Town Office at 403-227-3376, or send an email to karen.bradbury@innisfail.ca.
