In celebration of National Volunteer Week, we would like to introduce you to another one of our volunteers, James “Jim” Snowden. 

In honor of National Volunteer Week, we are spotlighting different volunteers. Today, we would like to introduce you to Jim Snowden.

Jim has been volunteering for Morristown-Hamblen Healthcare System over six years. His wife, Shirley, is also a volunteer and has been at MHHS over 15 years. Jim is the current President of the MHHS Volunteer Auxiliary Board. His favorite part about volunteering is meeting and working with people as well as being able to help them. Before he was a volunteer at MHHS, Jim worked at Wallace Hardware for 18 years and before that at American Enka for 41 years. You can find Jim volunteering in Admissions on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the hospital. He also helps proctor the tests for medical students as needed.
