You can lay down in the snow and make a Snow Angel…or you can become one be helping a neighbor with their snow.
The Town of Innisfil has launched a Snow Angels initiative to encourage residents to help each other with snow removal – especially those who struggle to keep their driveways and sidewalks clear.
“Snow Angels is essentially about neighbours working together and looking out for each other – something we encourage throughout the year. This will help build a better community and is part of that small-town charm that people love about Innisfil.”
– Innisfil Mayor Lynn Dollin
The program works by giving residents the opportunity to nominate someone else who has helped out with clearing snow and/or ice. Here’s how it works:
- Go to getinvolvedinnisfil.ca/snowangels to nominate someone who has helped you, a neighbour or someone else by clearing their driveway and/or walkway of snow and/or ice
- When you nominate someone the Town of Innisfil will provide you with a Town of Innisfil Snow Angel Certificate of Appreciation, a toque and a Tim Horton’s gift card for you to give to that snow angel
- As an added bonus, all snow angels will also be entered into a monthly draw to win a Town of Innisfil swag bag
Volunteers – or snow angels – must provide their own shovel; students can apply their Snow Angels hours towards the high school volunteer requirement. Proper shoveling techniques and preventative back exercises are encouraged as the Town of Innisfil is not responsible for any injuries.
