Snow Angel Applicant Guidelines

Davenport Snow Angel Program

Snow Angel Recipient Guidelines

The City of Davenport Snow Angel program is intended to connect volunteers with individuals in need of assistance to shovel their sidewalk during the winter.

Eligibility for Snow Angel Assistance.  The Snow Angel Program is designed to assist seniors and physically disabled Davenport residents that are unable or lack the resources to remove snow from their sidewalks and walkways.

Individuals eligible for the program must be a Davenport resident, at least 60 years old or physically disabled.

Snow Angel Volunteer Placement. Our success and ability to place volunteers with applicants is dependent on the number of volunteers signed up to be a Snow Angel. Applicants will be notified when/if a volunteer is assigned to their request for assistance. We may not be able to honor all requests for assistance due to lack of volunteer resources.

Snow Angel Applicant/Volunteer Relationship. Applicants and their Snow Angels are advised that this is a completely voluntary program. Service expectations and terms of the relationship have been established to protect both Snow Angel Applicants and the Snow Angels themselves.

  • Snow Angels are not expected to provide services other than snow removal.
  • Snow Angels are not expected to remove snow other than the snow on public sidewalks and creating a path up to the front door of the applicant, if requested. Snow Angels are not obligated to clear snow from driveways.
  • Snow Angels are volunteers. Applicants should not offer any form of payment for snow removal, nor should the Snow Angel request any form of payment.
  • Snow Angels are not expected to remove light snow with little accumulation or to remove snow if the snow is expected to melt within 24 hours.
  • Snow Angels may have jobs and other activities they participate in, Applicants should not expect their volunteer to clear walks immediately following a snow event. Snow Angels are only asked to provide service within 36 hours following the conclusion of a snow event.
  • Inviting a Snow Angel into your home is NOT endorsed by the City.
