Delta puts out call for Snow Angels

Program matches volunteers with residents unable to shovel snow from their driveways and sidewalks

Delta is calling for volunteers for its Snow Angel program.

With winter around the corner, Delta is calling for Snow Angel volunteers to apply to give their time and energy to help keep our community safe this season.

Launched in 2011, Snow Angel is a volunteer-driven program that matches volunteers with Delta residents who are unable to shovel snow from their driveways and sidewalks.

“The Snow Angel program is about neighbours helping neighbours to keep everyone in our community safe during heavy snowfall,” said Mayor Lois Jackson in a press release. “I really encourage anyone with the time, flexibility and physical ability to volunteer as a Snow Angel. It’s a rewarding opportunity.”

Last winter, 34 North Delta residents used the program, plus another 30 in Ladner and Tsawwassen.

To qualify for assistance, residents must be 65 or older and living in a single-family residence in Delta, or have a physical disability that leaves them unable to shovel their sidewalks. There must also be no able-bodied person under 65 living in the residence.
