Types of Volunteers
The PBCC is frequently invited to have an information table at health fairs across the state. If a staff member is not available to staff that table, we draw on volunteers in that area to help. This person will encourage people to take our information and giveaways and answer any questions people might have.
Grassroots Partners Events/Fundraisers
Unique events, organized by community members we call Grassroots Partners happen all across the state to benefit the PBCC year round. We might need someone to register attendees at a run or walk, to work at a raffle/auction table at a dinner, or to collect event tickets at the door. There are many different jobs at so many different events; organized, motivated, and creative volunteers are needed to help at many of these events.
Often, the PBCC is asked to send a speaker to talk about breast cancer, a personal survivor's story, or the role of the PBCC. Volunteers who are knowledgeable about the PBCC, have a personal story to share and are comfortable speaking in public are always needed for these types of events.
67 Women, 67 Counties: Facing Breast Cancer in Pennsylvania Photo Exhibit Committee Member
The PBCC's traveling photo exhibit, 67 Women, 67 Counties: Facing Breast Cancer in Pennsylvania travels to approximately six communities across the state each year. In each of those communities, organized and enthusiastic committees are needed to help organize the opening reception and the events surrounding the 10-day exhibit.
The PBCC is always looking for opinions on how we can continue to improve and evolve. Focus group volunteers will serve as our sounding board for new ideas regarding our annual conference, new fundraising ideas, and various other programs. Focus Group members will be contacted by email only.
Home Run Derby
The PBCC holds an annual Home Run Derby event each summer at professional baseball stadiums in PA. Volunteers are needed to serve as Outfield Ball Shaggers at every event. Outfield Shaggers enjoy being out in the sun, want the chance to experience being on a minor league baseball field, don't mind being on their feet, but don't need to be able to catch or throw a ball! This might be a fun family activity to do with your kids.
Individuals who are interested in donating their professional services (i.e. graphic design, photography, catering, marketing, etc.) are welcome to share their expertise with the PBCC. We are always looking for creative and new ways to spread the word about the PBCC and for help at many of our events. If you have a service you’re willing to donate, and think could be useful for the PBCC, let us know!
