Online applications now available for city's Snow Angels program
October 9, 2018
Snow Angels – the City of Pittsburgh program matching volunteers to elderly residents and those with disabilities needing snow removal help – is now taking applications online.
Both volunteers and residents may sign up for the program at the Snow Angels website, http://pittsburghpa.gov/snowangels/index.html, or can print application materials and mail them to the city. Applications are also available through the city’s 311 Response Center.
Last year Snow Angels served 143 residents with the help of 135 volunteers.
To help boost volunteer numbers this year the city is holding a competition to see which community groups recruit the most Snow Angels volunteers. Winning groups will be recognized by Mayor William Peduto and receive other perks.
More information is available from Ernest Rajakone in the city’s Office of Community Affairs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
