IVC is pleased to announce that we have taken on a new program this winter!!
What is SnowBusters?
SnowBusters is volunteer snow removal service for seniors and/or persons with disabilities. Volunteers help residents remain in their homes safely over the winter. The SnowBusters community program matches eligible individuals with volunteers who commit to clearing ice and snow from a residents’ walkway or driveway within 72 hours after each snowfall.
What will your help do?
The SnowBuster volunteers are an essential part of making a life-changing experience for our community, whether you become a SnowBuster or simply help out a neighbour on your block. Help to build a stronger and safer community and create an opportunity for an important connection.
• It helps neighbours remain independent in their homes.
• Helps prevent injuries from slips and falls.
• Promotes community connections and inclusion.
• It’s also great exercise!
When? How Long?
During the 2018/2019 winter season, 72 hours or less after every snowfall.
We do our best to match our volunteers with residents who live nearby.
Who is eligible?
• Teens over the age of 14 years
• Teams or Groups
At the Information & Volunteer Centre, we envision a community where people look out for each other. Together, we can create a supportive, safe, and connected place to call home. Register today!
