Have you ever seen a "Snow Angels" sign in a neighbour's yard and wondered what it meant?
What is the Snow Angels Program?
The Snow Angels Program aims to encourage neighbours to help one another and thereby build a caring, engaged community. Residents in need of snow removal have "Snow Angel" signs placed on their yards.
Who is eligible to have a Snow Angels sign?
Residents who need assistance removing snow are eligible. The Snow Angels Program relies on the good will of neighbourhood volunteers. Placement of a Snow Angel sign on a yard is not a guarantee that snow will be removed.
Who are Snow Angels?
Snow Angels are individuals: youth, seniors, families, community groups, and corporate volunteers who voluntarily shovel snow for residents needing snow removal assistance.
When does the program run?
Snow Angels signs are placed on yards in mid-October, and picked up by mid-April.
Where can I get a sign?
Residents wanting a Snow Angels sign on their yard can call FCSS, beginning Oct. 1, at 780-594-4495.
Why become a volunteer Snow Angel?

• Keep your street safe for pedestrians
• Get some fresh air
• Receive a volunteer timesheet that can be used toward employee evaluations or school credit
