Snyder Village is always looking for wonderful people of all ages to lend a helping hand. We always need volunteers to help with bingo, deliver mail, plan and put on birthday parties, pass out linens and ice water, visit with residents, take residents to and from their rooms to the dining area, and much more. A Snyder Village volunteer has the opportunity to impact the lives of our residents. All volunteers are provided with a volunteer handbook and are invited to attend our annual Volunteer Recognition Luncheon. You will have the satisfaction of supporting the Snyder Village Mission of serving others and the appreciation of the residents at Snyder Village.
*Due to COVID-19 regulations and restrictions, some volunteer opportunities are limited until further notice.
We still have ways in which you can help us here at Snyder Village!
