Volunteer or Request Help from Snow Angels

Neighbors helping neighbors

Snow-covered sidewalks can be hazardous for everyone. The City of Pittsburgh’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 walkways.

Along with fostering stronger community relationships and relieving some of the stress that comes from a snowfall or freeze, Snow Angels make our sidewalks safer for those who are outside during the winter weather – like postal carriers, firefighters, police officers, and other neighbors.


Why volunteer?

Because helping your neighbors is SNOW much fun!

  • 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.
