The children of St. Jude is the reason why I do it. If we can do anything to help these children and their families get through the biggest fight of their life, I’m all for it.

Volunteer Engagement in a Virtual Environment

In late summer of 2020, the COVID-19 virus was ramping up, and people across the country were suddenly being furloughed or let go from their jobs. At the same time, Jessica McCaffrey, Phoenix regional director, and Erica Thompson, Las Vegas regional director, found themselves needing extra hands at their regional offices for specialized assignments, like marketing, public relations or outbound calls. Read more about their efforts.

Why volunteer?

Volunteers around the country, on average, spend 50 hours per year donating their time to the greater good. Studies have shown that volunteerism improves health by strengthening the body, improving mood, and lessening stress. Additionally, volunteering can increase self-esteem, enhance various skills and expand career paths.
