“He puzzled and puzzled till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before! ‘Maybe Christmas’, he thought, ‘doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more!’”
The Grinch’s big idea is just as relevant as it was in 1957 when Dr. Seuss penned the famous poem, so give your children (and yourself) the ultimate gift this holiday season by volunteering as a family to help those who need it most.
The winter season is challenging enough with icy roads, frigid weather and snowy sidewalks. Imagine adding a physical limitation, whether from illness, accident or age. One of the easiest ways to volunteer as a family and make a significant difference to Calgarians in need is to become a Snow Angel. This City of Calgary program encourages citizens to identify neighbours in need of assistance and take responsibility for removing snow and ice from their sidewalks, driveway or pathways to ensure safe access. There’s no need to register for this goodwill program. Just grab a shovel, your kids and head out. Introduce your family to your neighbours and add a personal community connection to this gift.
