Marion/​Grant Coun­ty natives Scott and Kel­ly Sny­der are loy­al neigh­bors to the com­mu­ni­ty, giv­ing of their time and tal­ents in var­i­ous ways.

They active­ly par­tic­i­pate at cleanups for numer­ous neigh­bor­hoods, care for their com­mu­ni­ty gar­den, the Curf­man Gar­den, on Wash­ing­ton St., and also con­nect with and help neigh­bors who express a need through Neigh­bor­link Grant Coun­ty (neigh​bor​linkgc​.org).

Kel­ly expressed their shared love for Mar­i­on and its peo­ple as the dri­ver of their involve­ment. She also empha­sized the grat­i­fi­ca­tion she receives even when help­ing out in a small way. I feel like if we all would do 1%, we would be where we need to be.”

City of Mar­i­on Neigh­bor­hood Asso­ci­a­tion Coor­di­na­tor Kay­la John­son grate­ful­ly expressed, The com­mu­ni­ty is at its best when folks like Kel­ly and Scott are involved. Their help­ful hearts are con­sis­tent­ly mak­ing a difference…as reli­able land­lords of sev­er­al prop­er­ties, vol­un­teers at a neigh­bor­hood cleanup, build­ing ramps for a neigh­bor in need, or sort­ing the mail at the hos­pi­tal. Team Sny­der is always will­ing to lend a hand, and they are mak­ing an impact in our com­mu­ni­ty each time they do.”
