Mount Oliver Snow Angels
With winter knocking on our doors, snow-covered sidewalks and driveways are right around the corner. For older residents and residents with mobility issues, these winter elements are a hazard for walking and driving.
To reinforce the bonds of community, the MTO Snow Angel program works to pair residents in need with helpful volunteers to ensure sidewalks and driveways are clear of snow and ice. Clear walkways also aid our community workers, like postal carriers, trash collectors, and emergency services.
MTO Snow Angel Program Guidelines:
- Matches are made on a rolling basis and may not be made right away. Requests and volunteers are accepted throughout the season and matches will be made as they are available.
- Those requesting services are expected to provide a shovel and salt to the Angel volunteer. Those requesting services should not need to be home to receive services.
- Areas are expected to be clear as soon as possible, but within 24-hours of the end of a snow event.
Volunteer Sign Up to be a Snow Angel
As an MTO Snow Angel, you will be paired with a resident in need located within a 10-minute walk from your residence. Mount Oliver will confirm all of the details with your match as a match is made.
