City of Edmonton asks you to nominate a Snow Angel!

The following is taken from the City of Edmonton Website:  Click here

We live in a winter city and snow is no stranger to Edmontonians.

But for some, particularly seniors and persons with disabilities, shovelling snow can be difficult and even dangerous. They need your help – they need a Snow Angel.

Snow Angels is an awareness and recognition program. It encourages Edmontonians to help a neighbour in need by shovelling their snow. It also acknowledges those volunteers as a City of Edmonton Snow Angel.

To be a Snow Angel, all you need to do is shovel snow for a person or persons in need in your neighbourhood. Your efforts will help create a safer community for everyone and will help people meet their responsibility to remove ice and snow from their sidewalks as soon as possible after a snowfall.  The City bylaw prohibits homeowners from letting snow or ice accumulate on their sidewalks during continuous snowfalls for multiple days at a time.

Say Thanks to Your Volunteer!

Nominate them as a City of Edmonton Snow Angel. When you nominate your volunteer, they receive official recognition by the Mayor and are automatically entered to win great prizes. They also each receive tickets to an Edmonton Oil Kings game.

Schools Get Shovelling!

This year, a special offer is being made to 10 Edmonton classrooms to become Snow Angels. The first 10 Edmonton classrooms (any grade up to 30 students) who volunteers their time to shovel snow in their neighbourhoods, will receive a pizza party sponsored by Boston Pizza. Each student will also receive recognition from the Mayor and an Oil Kings gift as a special thank you for their work.

To participate in the school program please complete the Snow Angels nomination form and attach the name of the School, Grade and a list of the students involved.
