Snow Angels

Snow Angels is an awareness and recognition program encouraging Peace River residents to help a neighbour in need by shovelling snow for them and to acknowledge those kind volunteers as a Town of Peace River Snow Angel.

Why Volunteer?

Keep our Town safe and accessible, snow that remains on sidewalks is hazardous for everyone, but especially for people with limited mobility who may be severely injured from a fall on ice or snow.
Snow covered walkways also make it difficult for people who deliver services in our town—mail carriers, meter readers, delivery drivers, firefighters and paramedics.
Watch out for the people in your neighbourhood who could use help shovelling their sidewalks and driveways and ask if you can lend a hand.
