Become a Snow Angel

Delta volunteers needed to help their neighbours when winter hits

Last winter, the Corporation of Delta initiated Snow Angels, a volunteer-based program where people who need their sidewalks and driveways shovelled are matched with people who enjoy helping out their neighbours.

It is a non-emergency service available for Delta residents 65 years and older or those who have physical limitations and don’t have others in their household who are able to assist. The Snow Angels program maintains a database to match Snow Angels with clients.

Snow Angel volunteers are again being recruited in anticipation of snowfalls this winter.

Citizens who would like to volunteer, and have their own transportation and shovel, are asked to contact Delta’s volunteer coordinator or download and submit a Volunteer Application Form from the Corporation of Delta website.

Applications can also be picked up at McKee, Kennedy or any other recreation centre in Delta.

Volunteers will be required to obtain a Criminal Record Check through the Delta Police department before beginning service. This process is free and quick.

People who would like to access the services of a Snow Angel should contact the Seniors Recreation Centre in their area of Delta as soon as possible to ensure inclusion in the program before the snow falls.

The Snow Angels service applies only to single family homes, as apartments and townhouse snow clearing is the responsibility of the landlord or strata council.

Kennedy Seniors’ Recreation Centre is located at 11760 88 Ave. and can be reached by calling 604-596-8722. McKee Recreation Centre is located at 5155 47 Ave. in Ladner.

Delta’s volunteer coordinator can be contacted at volunteers@corp.delta.bc.ca or by phone at 604-946-3288.

Volunteer application forms for this program can be accessed at http://www.corp.delta.bc.ca/EN/main/muni
