Cancer affects everybody. The American Cancer Society not only communicates this message in their education and advocacy efforts, but also illustrates this message through their diversity of volunteers and their diversity of volunteer positions. I have worked with high school students, business professionals, and retirees that have all come together in solidarity to fight against cancer and are equally as passionate about the cause. There is a range of ways to get involved in terms of time commitment and variation of activities such as setting up for events, writing thank you cards, driving cancer patients to treatments, or training new volunteers about the American Cancer Society's mission.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
meeting survivors that have directly benefited from ACS's efforts.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
MY ROLE:Volunteer & I helped train volunteers to lead all-night events to raise money for the fight against cancer.
