Adopt a sidewalk: Help your neighbours shovel snow!
The 2013/2014 campaign runs December 4, 2013 to April 18, 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.
- Do you have a neighbour who might not be in their home due to flood damage? Help them out by shovelling their walk.
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.
