Volunteers

Snyder Village is always looking for wonderful people of all ages to lend a helping hand! Our volunteers help with bingo, delivering mail, planning and putting on birthday parties, passing out linens and ice water, visiting with residents, taking residents to and from their rooms and 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.
