Snow Angels is a pilot program for Take Pride Winnipeg!
Take Pride Winnipeg! is partnering with local high schools to match student volunteers with seniors in need. We launched the program in September 2016, and were overwhelmed by the response from seniors. At this time, our waiting list far eclipses our volunteer registrations, so we have paused registrations for the 2016/2017 season.
We continue to work with schools to increase our volunteer numbers, in hopes to service those we already have waiting.
Pending funding for the 2017/2018 season, Take Pride Winnipeg! will consider opening the program to adult volunteers, so if you're interested in assisting, please get in touch starting April 2017 for the 2017/2018 season. Please be advised that adult volunteers will require a criminal background check.
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 to help launch the pilot program.
