Vannie E. Cook Jr. Children’s Cancer and Hematology Clinic volunteers are needed to supplement clinic services in a variety of ways. Volunteers make a difference to children, their families and the clinic staff every day of the year. Volunteers can be individuals or groups and organizations who volunteer on or off-site. On-site volunteers must be 15 or older, attend volunteer orientation and commit to at least 12 hours of volunteer service each month.
Among the many services that the volunteer members happily provide to clinic patients and their families are:
Entertainment and special event volunteers
Volunteers often bring special entertainment to the clinic. Patients may meet a professional athlete, magician or enjoy a live music performance.
Off-Site volunteer opportunities
Off-site volunteers are also an integral part of the volunteer story. Groups and individuals sew, knit and crochet a variety of items for distribution to our patients. Many host toy drives or donate refreshments to support our toy room or family lounge.
