With the snow starting to pile up once again, I would like to ask Calgarians to please give some thought to others in your neighbourhood who may have more difficulty dealing with the challenges winter brings. Consider helping them keep walks clear of snow and ice, and earn your wings as a Snow Angel!
Snow Angels is an initiative developed by Community & Neighbourhood Services that encourages Calgarians to look out for those who may need assistance with snow removal. Now in its 11th year, it’s one way that community members can come together and help each other out.
Keeping walks clear can be very challenging – even dangerous – for older adults and others who have limited mobility. They face a much greater risk of serious injury from a strain or fall.
Did you know that you can nominate a Snow Angel? Over the past 10 years, The City has recognized approximately 7,650 Snow Angels. Last year, a record 1,247 Snow Angels were nominated and we’d like to keep that momentum going!
If you, or someone you know has been helped by a Snow Angel, please contact 311 to nominate them. Snow Angels are officially recognized by The City of Calgary and entered in a prize draw.
