Snow Angels

The Volunteer Centre of Guelph/Wellington, in partnership with the City of Guelph, offers a volunteer snow removal service for eligible seniors and persons with physical disabilities. The Snow Angels program is truly ‘the neighbourly thing to do’ and is a great way for families to volunteer together, or high school students to complete their 40-hour community service requirement. Follow the progress of this year's team: #GuelphSnowAngels on Twitter and Instagram. 

How to become a Volunteer Snow Angel

Volunteers will be responsible for clearing snow at driveway entrances left by snow plows.
Anyone 14 years of age or older may volunteer for the program. Volunteers will be required to complete a screening process and complete a registration form (see link below).

To apply to become a Snow Angel, fill out the Volunteer Registration form
