Adopt a sidewalk: Help your neighbours shovel snow!
The 2014/2015 campaign will begin in early December of 2014.
For some, the first snow fall of the year is a welcome event. For others, snow brings worries of slipping and falling.
Keeping sidewalks shovelled, ice-free and safe can be very challenging – even dangerous – for older adults and others who have limited mobility. Snow Angels is a campaign that encourages Calgarians to be good neighbours and help neighbours in need with snow removal.
Be a Snow Angel
What does it take to be a Snow Angel? All you have to do is adopt a sidewalk this winter and keep it clear. Watch for people in your neighbourhood who could use help removing snow from their sidewalks and driveways and ask if you can lend them a hand.
If you and your neighbours or other members of your community would like to develop a more organized snow clearing program, call 311. Community & Neighbourhood Services can assist.
Nominate your Snow Angel
Do you have a Snow Angel? Do you know someone who is a Snow Angel? We're asking for people who've had their sidewalk 'adopted' to officially recognise their snow angel. Call 311 to tell us your story and nominate your Snow Angel.

Darryl Cromier, Snow Angel of the Year
Our 2013/2014 Snow Angels winner is Darryl Cromier!
Snow Angels wrapped up its tenth year on April 18 receiving over 1200 nominations of Snow Angels, whose names were entered into a draw for a $500 WestJet gift voucher. Since 2004, over 7600 Snow Angels have been recognized as part of the campaign.
This year’s winner is Darryl Cormier of Hidden Valley. Several years ago, while driving to work through Arbour Lake he stopped to help the Daly’s push their car out of their driveway. He has been their Snow Angel since that day.
Snow Angels is proud to have CTV Calgary and the Calgary Sun as partners in this important Community Development Initiative.
