Sign up to be a Snow Angel and help your neighbors

So far, we have not had nearly as much snow action as people in the western portion of our state, but that might change in the next couple of weeks. If you are someone who is physically able, shoveling snow to keep your neighborhood sidewalks clear is a small kindness that can make a big difference for people to be able to get around safely.

C-U Safe Routes to School, a partnership between MTD and SafeKids Champaign County, is encouraging community members to become Snow Angels this winter. When you sign up, you agree to clear a specific section of sidewalk (that you choose) within 48 hours of a weather event that results in more than 2 inches of snow. If needed, the program will provide snow removal supplies for you.
