Snow covered sidewalks can be hazardous for everyone. Pittsburgh Snow Angels is a program that helps minimize the hardships of winter by pairing volunteers with elderly or disabled residents to assist with snow removal.
Along with fostering stronger community relationships and relieving some of the stress that comes from a snow storm, Snow Angels makes our sidewalks safer for those who continue to serve despite the winter weather – like postal service workers, firemen, and police officers.
To be matched with a Pittsburgh Snow Angel and receive assistance, residents must have a physical disability or be age 60 or older.
In addition, residents must lack alternative snow removal resources and reside within the City of Pittsburgh.
