What is the Arvada Snow Buddies Program?

Arvada's Snow Buddies program matches older adults and residents with disabilities with caring volunteers to assist them with snow removal.

Volunteer to Be a Snow Buddy

The City of Arvada is now recruiting volunteers to help their neighbors in need of snow removal assistance for the 2022-23 season. Once you apply, staff will match you with a nearby neighbor(s).

Volunteers will be asked to:

  • Shovel front sidewalk, the walkway to the front door, and enough of the driveway to allow for one vehicle to enter/exit (half of a two-car driveway OR the entire one-car driveway)
  • Shovel within 24 hours after a snowstorm ends and only when snowfall accumulation totals 2 inches or more
  • Assist their Snow Buddy(ies) throughout the duration of the winter season

 

Apply to Volunteer Here!

This service is reserved for residents in the City of Arvada who:

  • Are physically unable to shovel
  • Cannot financially afford to pay for similar services

Application for assistance opens Monday, October 3
