Today until August 14, 2015, SNAP is asking for feedback as a part of a community needs survey.  See below for details:

Dear Valued Spokane Community Member,

SNAP is currently conducting a survey to determine current community needs.  This is an on-going part of our work to learn more about the needs in our community and what role SNAP may be able to play to help individuals and families meet those needs.

We are emailing you, as a current or former SNAP client, as we value your feedback.  We would also like to learn if we provided you with good customer service.  Treating people with dignity and respect is of utmost importance to us.

Please know that the surveys are anonymous:  we do not ask for your name or any identifying information.

Take the survey here!  It shouldn’t take more than a couple minutes of your time.

Your input is very important and is greatly appreciated.

With warm regards,
Your friends at SNAP
