St. Jude Children's Research Hospital may not be in your community, but our research and discoveries are — just like our volunteers.
And our volunteers, like Shanda, help support our mission: Finding cures. Saving children.®
Why become a volunteer?
Volunteerism improves health by strengthening the body, improving mood, and lessening stress.
Volunteers around the country, on average, spend 50 hours per year donating their time to the greater good.
Volunteering can increase self-esteem, enhance various skills and expand career paths.
St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. And our volunteers help make this possible by bringing the lifesaving mission of St. Jude to their communities.
Volunteers come from all walks of life and live all over the country, donating their time and talents to support St. Jude.
You can help by signing up to volunteer at a fundraising event in your town.
Your support will help ensure that families never receive a bill from St. Jude for travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
I volunteer for St. Jude because there's nothing that can compare to saving the life of a child or helping alleviate the stress of a parent.
