The City of Windsor says it’s still looking for some angels.
The Snow Angels program matches volunteer snow shovellers from the community with seniors and persons with physical disabilities living in Windsor.
Not only is snow buildup a potential hazard to those with limited mobility, but it also makes it difficult for service providers like police and fire, mail carriers, and meter readers to do their jobs safely and efficiently.
Volunteers must be 16 years of age or older. The city says the program is a great way for high school students to round out their 40-hour Community Involvement requirement.
The city says that there are currently 49 volunteers out helping 58 residents with their snow removal needs. However, there are still nearly 450 residents that remain on a waiting list in need of assistance.
All registered volunteers will be entered into a draw to win an iPad or one of five full-year passes to Adventure Bay Family Water Park.
You can call 311 for more information or to register.
