From the first snowfall, many Kelowna residents find it a challenge keeping their sidewalks free of snow and ice - particularly seniors or neighbours with a disability. 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.
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 a senior or a neighbour with a disability, and in many cases someone is already providing a helping hand. Be sure to read some of the stories we've received about these snow-busting residents that go above and beyond for their neighbours.
