Jeffry Schneider, a father of 3 and business leader of a private company, has a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Massachusetts, currently lives near Austin, Texas, and does charitable work for organizations such as the Cherokee Home for Children, Wonders and Worries, LifeWorks, Austin Pets Alive!, and the Gazelle Foundation. Jeffry strongly believes in giving back to the community and the world. Jeff’s an eccentric humanitarian. Further, Jeffry Schneider is committed first and foremost to helping those who help the less fortunate. He sponsors specific individuals who have risen to the challenge to help others in their community and around the world.
The Bureau of Labor and Statistics cites that, “The volunteer rate declined by 0.4 percentage point to 24.9 percent for the year ending in September 2015.” Most people in the United States complete a majority of their community service in life for a high school or college requirement. After accomplishing a specific number of hours, people cease to volunteer and go back to living their lives as they did before, this is where Jeffry stands out in the crowd. He didn’t stop volunteering after it stopped being required of him. He integrated it into his routine and diligently continues to make time for it without it being a requirement of others. He volunteers his time at all kinds of charities around Austin and around the country.
Throughout the last 10 or so years, Jeffry Schneider has spent time focusing on giving back to others that are less fortunate while utilizing his leadership skills to leave his mark on society. As a graduate from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, Jeffry Schneider was taught the significance of leadership as well as community service. The university, founded in 1863, has a longtime mission dedicated to those values, and the UMass Community Action Service through Leadership and Service (UMass CALLS) is an essential part of the curriculum that Jeffry completed while attending. As previously touched on, even after graduating from UMass, Jeff continued to give back to his community and lead others. Today he routinely gives back to society through volunteering his time and resources. He hopes to set an example for his kids and leave a legacy that encourages others to do the same with their resources.
