St. Jude Happy Cart Volunteer Opportunities

Happy Cart volunteers provide crafts, activities and distractions to the patients of St. Jude.


COVID-19 Notice to Volunteers

For the safety of our patients and families, we are not accepting applications for new volunteers at this time. 

We hope to open applications in early 2022.  

Volunteer with Happy Cart

The St. Jude Happy Cart is full of donated toys, games, activities and crafts that volunteers give to St. Jude patients. The cart is also stocked with useful items such as notebooks, magazines, phone charters and hair ties that patient families may sometimes need. These items can provide necessary distractions for patients and families.

Happy Cart volunteers work in groups to distribute these items inside clinics and on inpatient floors. 


Shifts are available Monday through Friday, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. each week.

Volunteers must be able to effectively work and communicate with others as well as provide age-appropriate activities for children.
