|It's November now, and it looks like snow is here to stay. Keeping sidewalks free of ice and snow can be very challenging for older adults and people with limited mobility.|
Seniors Support Services is looking for volunteers to assist seniors with their snow removal. Through the Town's Snow Angels program, you are encouraged to be a good neighbour by clearing snow for those who need assistance.
What happens is that a senior in need will call Didsbury Neighbourhood Place to request snow removal and DNP will provide that person with a contact list of approved Snow Angels. If you're on the "Angel" list, you will get a phone call from that senior and can set up arrangements directly.
To be added to Didsbury's Snow Angels list, contact Neighbourhood Place at 403-335-8719. You must be prepared to have a Criminal Record Check.
You can also meet with Seniors Supports Services in person at 1606 - 14th Street (the Town Office).
Being a snow angel is a great way to get out, meet your neighbours and help build community spirit. Thanks to all our "angels"! A little shovel goes a long way in winter.
