Snow Angels

For the2018-2019 Winter Season, we are accepting applications from the following postal codes only: R3A, R3B, R3C, R3E, R3G, R2X, R2W, R2K, R2L, R3W, R2C. If your postal code is listed, and you are a senior in need, please call our office 204-956-7590 or email Carrie Lund to register. 

Take Pride Winnipeg! is partnering with local high schools to match student volunteers with seniors in need, including those on fixed incomes or with a permanent disability. We launched the Snow Angels in September 2016, and were overwhelmed by the response from seniors. Please note that the number of seniors we are able to help will depend on the number of student volunteers we are able to recruit each year, so this service is not guaranteed.

Are you a student looking for volunteer hours? Speak to your principal or leadership teacher about setting up Snow Angels at your school. Participating schools will receive the snow-clearing supplies, and participating students will receive toques and special recognition in the spring for their efforts..

Be a good neighbour! If you have a senior on your block, and you see that they need help, we encourage you to reach out and offer your help. Building community makes stronger neighbourhoods and better quality of life for everyone!

Thank you to the City of Winnipeg for providing funding for the program.
