Nominate your Snow Buster
From the first snowfall, many Kelowna residents find it a challenge keeping their sidewalks free of snow and ice - particularly seniors or those with mobility challenges. Being a Snow Buster is truly the "neighbourly" thing to do, it involves lending a helping hand by clearing snow from a neighbour's driveway or sidewalk.
Do you have a neighbour or friend who regularly clears snow from your sidewalk?
We want to hear from you. Fill out the online form, submit a letter or email us explaining why you would like to nominate your neighbour or friend as a Snow Buster.
Nominees will be entered into a monthly draw to win a pair of Kelowna Rockets hockey tickets. To be eligible, the nominee must be a resident of Kelowna.
The City of Kelowna's Snow Buster program is about acknowledging those individuals that help our community by clearing snow without being asked or expecting thanks. Most residents live within steps of someone who could use a helping hand, and in many cases someone is already helping. Be sure to read some of the stories we've received about these snow-busting residents that go above and beyond for their neighbours.
Adopt your Block
Bring your neighbours together and pledge to keep your block clear of ice and snow. By helping to keep your sidewalk clear, you help ensure your neighbourhood can be a safe and healthy space.
Take the pledge and share your shovel adventures with the City by using #KelownaSnowBuster on Twitter or Instagram, and be entered into the monthly draw for Kelowna Rockets tickets.
The Seniors Outreach and Resource Centre is seeking volunteers for their Snow Buddies program, where a resident can help a senior in their area. Volunteers will be screened and matched with clients. For more information, please visit their website, or call 250-861-6180.
