Your volunteer participation is an invaluable resource, especially since it is difficult for our small (but mighty) staff of 8 to make it to every event across the state! As a grassroots, non-profit organization, we are always in need of creative, organized individuals who are interested in volunteering for the PBCC.
The PBCC is frequently invited to have an information table at health fairs across the state. This person will encourage people to take our information and giveaways and answer any questions people might have, or direct them to our website.
Unique events, organized by community members we call Grassroots Partners happen all across the state to benefit the PBCC year-round. There are many different jobs at so many different events; organized, motivated, and creative volunteers are needed to help at many of these events. This is our largest need in terms of volunteering, so if you are unsure where to start, consider becoming an event volunteer.
Often, someone is asked 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.
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.
