Snow shovellers needed

Better at Home services to seniors is looking for snow shovelling volunteers

Better at Home is thriving, providing volunteers for a host of services to seniors in Quesnel.

As autumn turns into winter the inevitable snow has arrived and there are 30+ clients needing a shovelling angel.

Better at Home coordinator Brenda Gardiner is looking for about 12 or so individuals who will sign up just to shovel snow when needed.

Each volunteer will be assigned a client.

“When it snows enough to merit a quick snow removal, you just go and get-er-done,” Brenda said.

“Then report in the date and how much time you spent.”

Each volunteer needs a criminal record check which is free for volunteers from the RCMP detachment.

“I will match you with a client in your area,” Brenda added.

“Hey, it’s an exercise program that gives back in so many ways.”

For those interested, call Brenda, 250-992-9156 for an application form and a criminal record check form.
