Generous and dedicated volunteers play a critical role in the success of SNAP services.

Volunteer Opportunities

Community Educators – We need people who can assist our Conservation Educator in various capacities.

Financial Services – We need someone who can spend 4 hours a week or more answering emails and phone calls, filing, and other computer-related duties as it relates to financial services. We’ll provide the training – you bring your people skills!

SNAP Ambassador – SNAP is often asked to speak to groups of all sizes, or to be represented at community events. We’re looking for extraordinary people, who like public speaking or one-on-one with people, that we can call on to be our ambassador in the community. SNAP Ambassadors will go through several hours of specialized training and represent our mission and values to the community-at-large.

Long Term Care Ombudsman – Volunteers are needed in all five counties that we serve, especially in areas outside the city of Spokane. If you’d like to help make a difference in the lives of Eastern Washington long-term care residents, call to ask about the next training session.

Carpentry/Maintenance – We have several opportunities for someone with carpentry skills for small building and repair projects, and also need people who can help clean or empty apartments for rental.

Groundskeeping – Do you have a green thumb? Do you enjoy working outside? Several SNAP properties require year-round maintenance, from raking to weeding to hosing of parking lots.

Group Activities

SNAP can help you coordinate a fun activity for your church, service group, school or business. We’ve got plenty of ideas on how you can help SNAP – and you’ll enjoy your experience!

  • Cleaning and/or painting an apartment or house to make it ready for a family to occupy
  • Landscaping a SNAP facility
  • Hosting or volunteering for a SNAP fund raising event
