    A neighbourhood snow angel!

    by Janet L Mitchell, 5 months ago

    No matter how much shoveling he has done at his own house, Micah regularly shows up to neighbours houses and just starts shoveling. He perseveres until he is completely finished and then moves on to the next house. Micah methodically and tidily cleans entire driveways just because "he likes to shovel and help people". What an amazing young man.

    good neighbour!

    by elaine lowen, 5 months ago

    This neighbour is always helping out when the need is there. It is so nice to arrive home after a long day of highway travelling to find our driveway cleared after a heavy snow storm. Very thoughtful of him.

    Happy helpers

    by simpsonburns , 5 months ago

    My brother always goes to some of our near neighbors early morning shoveling their drive way without being asked,, if it needs to be done twice in one day he will make sure it's done! My 9year old is starting to be like his uncle and really enjoys shoveling just as much as my brother,, so the 2 of them will do it together sometimes 😊!! Just want their story to be seen, and spread to everyone!

    Retired neighbor always a help

    by Jaimie-Lyn, 5 months ago

    The retired gentleman across the street from my house always plows his, mine and my other neighbors driveways. Some of us are older(elderly), some younger. I have an infant and can't do it ... He helps us all. We've never had to ask either and he always refuses payment. His name is John and he's a great snow Angel.

    Old Angel but is always helping

    by Aim, 5 months ago

    My dad is 70 years old and is always helping out his neighbours. There could be a light snow or a heavy snowfall and he is the first person to get up before the sun to start his slow blower and begin snow blowing and shovelling everyone’s driveways, front steps and sidewalks. Not only does he shovel snow, he also picks up recycling bins and garbage cans too and brings them to their front steps or garage door. If he is feeling under the weather he still gets up to help people out. I have to also give a shout... Continue reading

    Kingston Neighbour Snow Angel

    by TabithaS, 5 months ago

    I work as an Educational Assistant, so sometimes I leave my house early in the morning. This young gentleman that is a grade 11 student makes sure that my walkway and my vehicle is cleared of snow and ice everyday it snow and, he will shovel multiple times as day if needed before school, after school and on the weekends. He also shovels my 4 of my neighbours walkways when it snows all of which have disabilities that prevent them from leaving the house if there is snow. I have lived in this neighbourhood for a long time and I... Continue reading

    Broken Ankles Suck!

    by Marina, 5 months ago

    2 weeks ago I slipped on some ice and broke my ankle. This has obviously limited my abilities to do a bunch of things, including shoveling snow!!! I hired a snow removal company to clear my driveway. The problem I have is that I have a small dog, who can not get out into the back yard when the snow is over a foot (that's taller then he is). I usually shovel a path on the deck and then a track around the backyard so he can run around a bit, now that I can't walk him having the track... Continue reading

    Win-drow Hero

    by Canadian359, 5 months ago

    My neigbhour is retired. I'm in my 30's.

    He regularly takes care of the windrow at the bottom of my drive. Whether I'm out of town or not.

    He never tells me - but I know it's him.

    I've also seen him help other neighbours from time to time,, including one whose spouse is deployed.

    I'm happy to discuss further but don't want to share further details for [his] privacy reason.

    But he's our windrow hero!

    Winter Help

    by Kmackenzie, 6 months ago

    When my husband gets deployed for the winter my neighbour snowblows our shared driveway, which is about 3 cars deep, whenever there is a big snowstorm. It's a huge help when I'm on my own with my two young kids and have trouble finding the time to shovel. I'm very grateful for their help!
