Tecumseh, Windsor need Angels

Most of the trees still have their leaves, and snow still seems like a distant thought, but the Town of Tecumseh is looking for volunteers to rake leaves and shovel snow.

The Snow and Leaf Angels Program begins on October 31. Angels are matched with seniors and those with physical disabilities who can’t do those chores.

“Our volunteers are the backbone of many of our programs in Tecumseh,” said Mayor Gary McNamara. “Snow and Leaf Angels are truly angels to many residents in the community, and we are so grateful for their time and effort through some of the worst weather, helping those in need.”

Because of the pandemic, volunteers and recipients won’t interact with each other. Angels get toques, and if they need them, shovels.

Not only is it a great way to show your community spirit, but it is also an opportunity for high school students to earn the 40 hours of volunteer work they need to graduate.

Those who want to volunteer or who will need help this fall and winter can call Tecumseh Town Hall at 519-735-2184 ext 143 or go to the town’s Snow and Leaf Angels webpage.

There were 42 volunteers last year for over 40 residents in need.

The program wraps up on March 31, 2022.

The City of Windsor is offering its Snow Angels the opportunity to win a tablet or a Rec Express gift card.
