Another group of volunteers is made up of the representatives to SnowCap from community supporting organizations and churches. They let their members know what is going on at SnowCap and promote giving and activities for SnowCap to their groups.
There is yet another group that's rarely seen. These are Board members. These are the people who govern SnowCap. They work with the press, organize special events, obtain important donations, and maintain good relations with our growing community. Each Board member works an average of ten hours a month for SnowCap. While each Board member serves on a committee, there are non-board members on each committee. These are people who volunteer to help the Board on a specific project or issue.
The Board also creates task forces and study groups. An Endowment Task Force is now studying how to assure our long term effectiveness. If SnowCap continues to be a place where needy families can turn even into the next century, it will be because of the vision of some key volunteers.
