Here is some feedback about the great Snow Angels at work in Yellowknife during the winter of 2015-16.
Being from a rural area in Nova Scotia and never having anyone to help with yard maintenance or snow removal after I became partially disabled with a back injury, I found it to be a huge burden lifted from myself when so many kind people up here in Yellowknife offer their spare time to help others. Our snow angel was always here promptly after a snowfall and not only kept our stairs and sidewalk cleared but also our driveway. I wish to thank all of the Snow Angels for their time and hard work.
Thank you so much to my Snow Angels for doing such a good job keeping my steps, driveway and sidewalk clear of snow. It was going to be a difficult winter because I am not able to shovel the snow any more. It made winter so much easier not having to worry about getting in and out of the house. Thank you!
Businesses can also be recognized through the Golden Shovel program.
