As snow warning continues, call goes out for Chilliwack snow angels

Chilliwack and District Seniors’ Resource Society looking for volunteers willing to shovel snow

This winter is your chance to be somebody’s angel.

Snow angels are volunteers who sign up to shovel driveways and walkways for Chilliwack’s seniors. Snow removal is important for seniors who may not even need to go out, as they could require emergency services to access their home.

The need always depends on the amount of snow that falls each winter, but with the snow forecast for today (Nov. 9), the Chilliwack and District Seniors’ Resource Society has put the official call out.

A Pacific frontal system will be arriving from the south coast this afternoon, possibly producing snow for neighbourhoods and roadways above 200 metres in the Fraser Valley. Higher terrain in the Fraser Valley may get up to five centimetres, while Metro Vancouver will see five to 10 centimetres depending on elevation.

Anyone who is interested in volunteering some time this winter is asked to contact Lori at 604-793-9979 or email at programs@cdsrs.ca.
