Snow Angel Volunteer Snow Removal Program

Can you help students and other Urbana residents get around safely this winter?  Every winter portions of sidewalks used by walkers and people in wheelchairs become impassable due to uncleared snow on sidewalks.  We are looking for volunteers to be "Snow Angels" for other residents and help to keep routes clear.  Volunteers select a section along priority sidewalk routes (based on school walking routes and other high-traffic sidewalks around bus stops, etc.), and commit to clearing the section within 48 hours after a snowfall of 2" or more.

Bowl For Kids Sake

Bowl For Kids’ Sake is Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Illinois' signature fundraiser. Bowl For Kids’ Sake is the perfect way for individuals to make an impact on our community - it only takes a little bit of effort to raise the money that is vital to our program’s success. We ask that each bowler raise a minimum of $100 or their team raises at least $500 to participate.
