Dealing with snow is a big part of being an Edmontonian. Keeping our sidewalks free of snow and ice is critical in keeping Edmontonians moving safely and enjoying winter. As a community, we want to encourage everyone to keep their sidewalks free of snow and ice.
We also want to encourage our community members to consider helping a neighbour. Many citizens need help due to mobility or health issues and might not always ask for help.
If you are a senior needing help shovelling your walk this winter, please contact the Westend Seniors Activity Centre at 780-483-1209.
Snow Angels will be eligible for a prize pack draw from Boston Pizza.
Become a Snow Angel by:
- Keeping your walk free of snow and ice
- Shovelling a neighbour’s walk
- Starting a conversation with neighbours about the importance of clear sidewalks
- Making a plan with your neighbours to share the shovelling
Our community depends on funds raised through our bingo and casino events. We are always looking for volunteers to help us out.
Bingos take place at Castledowns Bingo hall (12222 137 Ave) from 10:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Upcoming bingo dates:

Bingo volunteers will receive a 40 dollar credit per shift that can be used towards approved community program registration (such as our Guitar lessons program, the After School Dance Club, Indoor and Outdoor Kids Soccer, WMCL fitness classes (Zumba and Workout Buddies), programs like Kids Paint Night, Family Paint Night, Rustic Sign Night, etc). Lunch (up to $10) is also provided while volunteering at the bingo.
