    It takes a village

    by Natalie, 8 months ago

    Despite the amount of extra effort a snowstorm brings, it warms my heart to see neighbours coming together. I’d like to nominate my neighbor Greg as someone in the community that goes above and beyond. He is one of those kind souls that always has helping others on his mind. Each day he selflessly lends a hand to neighbours on each side of his house as well as to us across the street. Whether it’s help shovelling, brushing snow off our cars in the morning or bringing our empty blue boxes up to our house, Greg is a neighbor that... Continue reading

    The Mr. Plow of James Govan

    by Refrigeration_Rob, 9 months ago
    My neighbour Bryon Clark has been removing snow for myself and everyone within a 8 home radius. He has been using his snowthrower to remove snow on his neighbour’s driveway and the sidewalks. He’s been doing this for a couple years now. If he’s at work, he allows me use of his machine and I follow his direction and do our neighbours homes on his behalf. He resides at 43.

    Snow Angel of Schilling Court

    by Rosie & Jamie, 9 months ago
    Joel is a neighbour & has cleared snow on the court over the years. Yesterday's snow fall was a whopper (January 17th, 2022). One of the snow contractors really botched up our street. The contractor pushed all the snow from the entry of our court into the circle & this resulted in 10 driveways being completely blocked & their cars could not exit their driveways nor could any emergency vehicles attend if the need arose. After working a 24 hour shift, Joel came home & worked to clear driveways & pathways for 6 straight hours using both a shovel &amp... Continue reading

    Most wonderful neighbour

    by Rosemarie, 9 months ago
    We live in Whitby and we wish to nominate our neighbour Sam, two doors down - he is an absolute Snow Angel! As soon as the snow has fallen, our Angel comes over to shovel our driveway, together with our front steps and verandah. The latter to avoid a newspaper graveyard. He is such a gentle soul, always helping us out whenever needed. He is actually an all-year-round Angel.

    We reside at 117 James Govan Drive, in Whitby and our Snow Angel lives at 113 James Govan Drive. Our Snow Angel's name is Sam Manna

    Never ending Snow Clearing

    by Sarah, 9 months ago
    The day of, and a few days later I see very little of my partner as he is outside clearing snow for neighbours. After he completes our property, I see him move to our neighbour to the south, then I reheat his coffee and he moves on to a little further south, then I provide him with a kleenex to wipe his nose and he moves on to the another neighbour across the street, then I provide him with dry clothes and out he goes again, and so on and so on. Yesterday, during the snowstorm, he was outside with... Continue reading

    Martha, Stewart, Allen, (Kennett Dr)

    by Sujeet B, 9 months ago

    I would like the share my deepest gratitude towards my neighbors Martha, Stewart and Allen who came to the rescue today. Our car battery died yesterday and we couldn't move the car last night. The car was buried in snow and the driveway was also full of snow since we are living away from the house due to renos. When I went to the house, I couldn't find the batteries to the snow blower in the garage or enter the house as the door was blocked by snow. Stewart was kind enough to lend his snow blower with gas. While... Continue reading

    Community Super Hero

    by Vishnu Radhakrishnan, 9 months ago
    @Rick Johnson and his wife are really caring people. They take it up on themselves to make sure the neighborhood is a safe and clean space. The other day the Duo cleaned up the side walks of the elderly people in the street ensuring the ice rain doesn't turn the sidewalks into skating rinks. He is usually the first person to help anyone in the street and he is truly inspiring Gentleman.

    Snow Clearing Champion

    by Harrizeb, 9 months ago
    We live close to a bus stop which is used by neighbours in our sub division to get to Whitby Go daily. For many years our neighbour has cleared the snow along sidewalks on both sides of the road and down to the bus stop as well as for an elderly neighbour.

    Kindness makes for a happier world!!

    by TammyN, over 1 year ago

    Since Covid began, I have been blessed to witness an outpouring of love and kindness from a group called Whitby Caremongers. One volunteer in particular stands out to me. Cindy Cole, a single mom of two fabulous boys, works full time and immediately stepped in to help as many as she could as part of Caremongers and outside of Caremongers. She shops for seniors, she checks in on people and offers to shop for friends and family members while she’s out and about picking up and delivering for others. She’s spreading love and cheer through messages and flowers. My 93... Continue reading
