Volunteers are crucial to the Cancer Wellness Center’s success and there are a volunteer variety of opportunities. We need support for our professional and clinical staffs; communicating with all of the Center’s many constituencies; encouraging and assisting with fundraising efforts; participating and helping manage special events; and during workshops and other Center activities. If you would like more information on volunteering, please contact the Center at 847.509.9595.
Administrative volunteers welcome participants and family members to the Center, giving tours to acquaint new participants with the facilities, answering calls, helping with special communication projects or informational mailings, and other onsite responsibilities. Volunteers are needed during normal office hours (9 a.m. to 5 p.m.) as well as for evening programs hosted at the Center.
The Center holds a number of different fundraising events throughout the year including a 5K Run/Walk and annual benefit. Volunteers assist in planning, marketing and event mailings. We also need plenty of people the day of events to help with registration, raffles and other activities.
Outreach activities increase awareness about the Center in the community. Outreach volunteers can help by attending health fairs; speaking to community groups about their experience at the Center; staffing lobby tables at cancer centers; and distributing literature to hospitals and medical practices.
