Snow Angels Brandon, a good Samaritan-style community program overseen by the City of Brandon, is back for another winter season. It is currently looking to match up volunteers from the community willing to shovel for residents in their neighbourhoods requiring snow-shovelling assistance for the public sidewalks in front of their home.

Through the program, volunteers are asked to help clear the municipally owned sidewalks around a resident's property to keep Brandon's neighbourhoods safer and more accessible.

There is no cost to register to receive shovelling assistance, and the program does not allow for any payment for shovelling services provided. An important reminder that the program does not cover any volunteer shovelling that may occur on private property.

Volunteers or persons who have signed up for shovelling assistance can opt out of the program at any time by contacting the City of Brandon in the same method they applied to participate. All program participants must re-register annually, even if they have been part of the program in previous years.
