Through our corporate volunteering and community outreach program, The SOLution, SOLitude has named Regional Administrator Becky Snyder of Massachusetts as the Volunteer of the Quarter for the fourth quarter of 2017. Becky (left) has been active and engaged in organizing team volunteering events benefitting local non-profits and environmental needs in her surrounding community, and rallying her coworkers to join in the efforts.
Becky plays a vital role in coordinating New England office initiatives. In 2017, she purchased all gift cards and food donations for Little GOBBLERS deliveries, and shopped for and delivered SOLitude’s HOLiday Cheer toy and game donations for sick children at Shriners Hospital in Springfield, MA. In the last year, Becky also helped the New England team organize and complete several trash clean ups and volunteering events at the Worcester Co Food Bank and The Mustard Seed Soup Kitchen. Becky inspired all to collect can tabs and spare toiletry items to donate to local families in need and assembled all the bags on her own. Additionally, she encouraged her team to participate in Make A Difference Day, during which she visited and brought gifts to local nursing home residents.
She continues to follow her passion for empowering young girls through the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls, an organization that first sparked her interest in volunteering when she became involved as a child. In addition to helping lead events and fundraisers focused on encouraging girls to become confident leaders in their communities, she spent a significant amount of time putting together their 2017 Thanksgiving donation event, and their annual grand assembly program/ad book which helps fund their events.
In total, Becky logged 28 volunteer hours in the fourth quarter, and 126 hours for 2017, helping to surpass SOLitude’s team goal of 2,500 volunteer hours for the year.
“Throughout 2017 and notably in the fourth quarter, Becky exhibited generosity and leadership by inspiring her team and coordinating many charitable efforts on her own,” said Tracy Fleming, Director of Marketing. “Her passion for serving others is evident within the company and throughout her surrounding community.”
Preceding Becky as Volunteers of the Quarter in 2017 were Aquatic Specialist Greg Blackham of Georgetown, DE, (first quarter), Wildlife & Fisheries Biologist Cole Kabella of Bryan, TX, (second quarter) and Aquatic Technician Ryan Young of Bryan, TX, (third quarter).
