SOLitude’s Heart & SOL Award Honors Top Volunteer of 2018

Following
another successful year of volunteering and community outreach efforts through
The SOLution program, SOLitude Lake Management awarded the company’s annual
Heart & SOL award to Regional Administrator Becky Snyder for her
never-ending dedication to supporting charitable initiatives in her local
community of Shrewsbury, MA, and leading the company’s community outreach
efforts throughout the country.

The
Heart & SOL award recognizes one individual within the company each year
who goes above and beyond in personal volunteering, inspiring others, and
displaying a true commitment and passion for making the world a better place.
Becky was awarded this month during SOLitude’s annual “SOL Summit” culture and
team-building conference in Virginia Beach, VA.

In
2018, Becky logged a total of 117.5 volunteering hours and participated in an
array of volunteering events. She followed 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. Throughout the year, she served as a mentor during clean-ups,
Thanksgiving donation runs and community outings, and was integral in the
behind-the-scenes planning for group activities, open houses, and impactful
programs like Rainbow University. Becky further demonstrated the mission of The
SOLution program by cooking meals for a family in need of assistance, serving
as a volunteer at veterans’ events, and contributing her time to a variety of
local charitable efforts throughout the holidays. 

Becky
also served as the SOLitude Volunteer Team Captain for her region, a role
through which she coordinated and led team volunteering events with the
Worcester Co. Food Bank, trash clean-ups at the Blackstone River and Lake
Street Park, and toiletry drives for the less-fortunate. Furthermore, in
addition to her personal and Team Captain volunteering efforts, Becky played a
pivotal role as the Outreach Coordinator for The SOLution program for the
second half of 2018. Becky’s excellent time management, unparalleled
organization skills, and commitment to community and environmental stewardship helped
ensure each member of The SOLution team was informed about upcoming volunteer
events and motivated to serve in their local communities.

SOLitude
tracks team volunteering hours using a points system. Based on the number of
volunteering points earned each year, staff are rewarded with gift cards of
their choosing. Or, if team members decide to allocate their points towards a
donation to a non-profit organization, SOLitude will match the contribution.
This year, Becky chose to donate $586, half of her accrued reward, to the
Oxford Assembly, which supports the International Order of the Rainbow for
Girls. SOLitude’s company match brought the donation total to $1,172.

“Becky
truly went above and beyond in 2018, and we are honored to call her a member of
our team,” said Tracy Fleming, Director of Marketing & Communications. “She
consistently exemplifies the mission of The SOLution, and makes a positive
impact on everyone she encounters. There is not a more deserving recipient for
this award.”

Other
top volunteers recognized for quarterly awards in 2018 were Florida Regional
Manager Alberto Florez (Q1 and Q4), Massachusetts Aquatic Biologist Brea
Arvidson (Q2), and Virginia Regional Administrator Regina Brimmer (Q3).

 
The SOLution is a company-wide program that encourages the company and all
employees to strive to “create a better world” through volunteerism, community
outreach, sustainability and environmental consciousness. Since the program
began in 2012, SOLitude has donated more than $355,000 in goods and in-kind
services and contributed over 13,000 volunteer hours to our local communities
across the country. To participate or share a non-profit’s goals for
