Richmond Snow Angels 
City of Richmond Community Services Department

Description

As the winter months approach, heavy snowfall can cause challenges for some residents particularly elderly citizens and residents with illnesses, disabilities, or mobility challenges. Richmond's Snow Angels offer voluntary assistance to these community members.

The Snow Angel program is a volunteer program and is dependent on resources, severity of the storm, number of volunteers available and the priority needs of other callers. The program is only active in the event of a winter storm with more then 5+ centimeters of snow.

The City of Richmond is looking for volunteers to participate in the Snow Angels Program this winter. After snowfall events, Snow Angels help residents in need with removing snow from their walkways and sidewalks adjacent to their property.

Snow Angels are to provide their own equipment (shovel) and protective gear (proper footwear, toque, warm jacket, gloves, etc.). As snow shoveling can be a vigorous activity, volunteers are asked to use their discretion at all times and only work to their personal capacity.

City of Richmond Volunteer Management Strategy Updates

Description

Help contribute to creating a culture of volunteerism and community connectedness by sharing your story

The City of Richmond is updating its Volunteer Management Strategy and we NEED to hear from YOU. Help us drive the Volunteer Management Strategy by sharing your story.

We want to learn about your experiences volunteering so that we can support your needs and goals as a volunteer. 

We are collecting personal stories of volunteer experiences within the City of Richmond that may be shared with the community. Do you have a unique story or experience of volunteering? Has volunteering impacted you in some way? Would you like to share that experience with others in the community?


Stories may be featured on the City website or websites of our partner organizations, in newsletters, at public recognition events, or in some other public way. You can choose to leave your story anonymous or put a name or initials to it. If you have a story to share, please email it to Angela Rai at arai@richmond.ca.


For more information on the Volunteer Management Strategy, the survey, or about contributing a volunteer story please contact the Volunteer Development Coordinator, Wing Ho at who@richmond.ca or 604-247-4947 or Angela Rai, Planner with Community Services, at arai@richmond.ca or 604-247-4924.
