Winter is a’comin’ and it’s bringing snow. Denver’s Snow Angels programsends out volunteers to help shovel sidewalks for residents who need assistance.

❄️ Want to volunteer to be a Snow Angel? You can sign up here, email, call 720-913-7669, or reach out to your Registered Neighborhood Organization.

❄️ Need help from the Snow Angels program? You can apply here. You must meet these eligibility requirements:

  • Must be a Denver City and County resident
  • Must be physically unable to shovel
  • Must be financially unable to pay for a service

❄️ Good to know: Snow Angels do not shovel driveways or front steps, or remove downed trees. If you’re outside of Denver City and County limits and need help, call 211.

❄️ Denver’s snow removal requirements: Denver requires property owners to begin clearing sidewalks as soon as snow stops falling. Pedestrian walkways are expected to be clear within 24 hours. Failure to do so could result in a $150 fine. Learn more about Denver’s winter weather requirements, plus tips for how to manage them.
