The Snow Angels program is still in need of some volunteers to shovel for local seniors and those that have medical issues that are not able to shovel for themselves. Snow Angels is a volunteer service program where individuals, organizations, businesses, classrooms, families, and groups of youth can commit to removing snow from the driveway and sidewalks of local resident in need throughout the winter months. The volunteer is committed to the same resident throughout the campaign but may assist more than one person. People of all ages can take part of this program and volunteers are only required to shovel Monday's to Friday's. According to Tammy Lautner, Seniors Coordinator for the City of Fort Saskatchewan, the Fort Saskatchewan Correctional Centre helps out on the weekends shoveling and have been doing so for a number of years.
