Snow Angels go to School!
As of January 15, 2015, The City of Calgary officially welcomes all Calgary schools and their students to take part in Snow Angels and help keep community sidewalks safe this winter.
This rapidly growing campaign began in 2004 as a way to help older adults, and people with limited mobility, keep their sidewalks clear of snow and ice as required by City bylaws.
And Snow Angels does more than that. It raises community pride and brings us all a little closer together through active citizenship. It’s also a great opportunity for students to complete volunteer hours needed for some courses and to exercise outdoors!
