Florida native Cheryl Snowden has a lifelong track record of serving others. A mother of three and grandmother of one “oh-so-sweet” little girl, she recently retired from a small training company where she helped manage the day-to-day operations and develop their market, and is now involved with a handful of local non-profits, including Habitat Seminole-Apopka where she is the Development Office Volunteer and more recently a member of the Homeowner Services Committee. 

“My husband, Barry, encouraged me to start my lifelong love of helping those less fortunate back in the '70's.  Barry was a pastor and I was involved in many phases of raising money to help various groups throughout the years,” she said. Cheryl and her husband were married for 39 years before he passed. 

Cheryl has very quickly become an instrumental part of our team here at Habitat Seminole-Apopka. Marilyn Hattaway, Director of Philanthropy, has worked alongside Cheryl since she began with us eight months ago. 

“For some people, volunteering is about giving; for Cheryl, it’s a way of living. She makes a difference every day for our donors sharing her smile, talent and energy,” said Hattaway.

Thank you for all you do, Cheryl! Habitat is a brighter and more organized place for having you.
