Winter is Almost Here! Volunteers Required.
Volunteer Hamilton in partnership with the City of Hamilton offers a volunteer snow removal service for eligible seniors and persons with physical disabilities.
The Snow Angel program is truly 'the neighbourly thing to do' and a great way for high school students and others to get involved in their community.
The volunteer has 24 hours from when is stops snowing more than 3cm of snow to get to the home or homes that they have been assigned to. Once there the sidewalk, a path from the main entrance of the house to the sidewalk, and the end of the driveway need to be shoveled.
Volunteer Hamilton interviews all recipients and volunteers for this program.
If you think this is the volunteer opportunity for you then apply at www.snowangels.ca or call 905.523.1910.
1000 Conversations to Shape our Future
Community is good for us.
More and more people believe that community is important because it help;
- Shape our identify more broadly
- Us create a sense of belonging
- Us to care and be cared for (mutual aid)
- Our economic prospects
- Our health improve
- Us to be happy.
As part of Volunteer Hamilton's strategic plan (which is available for download here), and in partnership with Tamarack - Institute for Community Engagement we have initiated a conversation about community. We want to get people talking to each other about community, to assist collect their insights and stories, share them, and use them to inspire policy and programming that will help us build deeper experiences of community together.
