Shoveling a driveway or sidewalk is a fun and healthy opportunity for citizens of all ages to enjoy the outdoors while making a personal contribution to improving the quality of life of another in need.
Involvement in this program fosters a sense of ownership and goodwill, encourages civic responsibility and pride in the community and builds appreciation and connection between citizens of all ages. Studies have shown that when citizens actively work together or each other, crime decreases, health improves, resources can be redistributed and quality of life becomes better for all.
WHAT DO I NEED TO PARTICIPATE?
A desire to help a neighbour in need, fill out an application and you will be matched to someone within your area.
We will make sure that everyone who wants to shovel will get paired with a resident in need, even if it is a one-time only commitment.
If you have a favourite shovel or snow blower you are more than welcome to use them but usually the resident will be expected to supply the equipment.
