Become a snow angel in Richmond

Last year was busy for Richmond's Snow Angels and with the winter weather quickly  approaching, recruitment is underway for volunteeers.

Heavy snowfall can cause challenges for some residents, particularly senior citizens and residents with illnesses, disabilities and mobility challenges.

Richmond volunteer Snow Angels program is back for its 8th year to lend a hand to those in need of assistance this winter by removing snow from sidewalks and walkways.

An accumulation of 5 or more centimetres of snow is needed to activate the program. Although assistance is not guaranteed, participating volunteers will make every effort to help qualified callers.

If you would like to become a Snow Angel, visit, call 604-244-1208 or email  You may select the geographic community you wish to serve or provide your services city wide.

Snow Angels are to provide their own transportation, equipment and protective gear including shovels, proper footwear, gloves and jackets.

If you are a resident in need, requests should be made in advance of a storm by contacting a Snow Angel coordinator at your closest community centre or by calling 604-244-1208. A full list of coordinators can be found online at
