We need volunteers!

We have exhausted all volunteer snow angels, so we are not currently accepting new applications for recipients. If you are able and willing to volunteer, we would love to hear from you!

Volunteer to be an angel

Snow-covered sidewalks can be hazardous for everyone. The City of Toledo's Snow Angels Program pairs older residents and residents with disabilities with nearby neighbors who volunteer to assist them with snow removal on their sidewalks and driveways.

Along with fostering community relationships, this act relieves the stress after a heavy snowfall, keeps residents safe, and leaves a path for those outside during the winter weather – like postal carriers, firefighters, police officers, and other neighbors.

How it Works

Volunteer as a Snow Angel

You can sign up online to offer help as a volunteer. The Snow Angels Program will work to pair you with a nearby neighbor. We will be in touch when you have been matched with a neighbor in need.

  • Volunteer groups are welcome
  • Volunteers are expected to provide their own snow removal tools
  • You may not be assigned to help a neighbor immediately. Neighbors request help throughout the winter season. You may be assigned immediately, a few weeks after you sign up, or later during the winter.
  • Your assignment depends on if there is a neighbor who needs help near you. If none of your neighbors sign up, we may not be able to assign you.
  • Please help out your neighbor as soon as you are able and within 24-hours of the end of a snow event.
