“One of the greatest gifts you can give is your time.”

Volunteer Opportunities

Connect Thru Cancer’s volunteers help to provide the support services and resources that allow individuals and families to persevere through a difficult time in their lives.

Here are some fun ways to help Connect Thru Cancer (CTC) continue their mission of providing no-cost resources and support for individuals and families with cancer in our community:

Secret Santa

Looking to support a family in need during the holidays?

At Connect Thru Cancer we work closely with the community to find sponsors to fulfill Christmas wishes for our families. This volunteer opportunity is available to individuals and groups. If you are interested in becoming a Secret Santa, please email info@connectthrucancer.org. To sponsor a CTC family, click here. To apply to be a recipient of the Secret Santa program, click here.

Get Cozy for a Cause

Organize a “Get Cozy for a Cause” day at your school or office.

This is a fun, easy way to raise money for our organization. A small donation to Connect Thru Cancer will get you cozy for a day, while providing comfort to those affected by cancer.

Play for a Purpose

At Connect Thru Cancer we support individuals and families affected by all types of cancers.

This meaningful program aims to recognize that people are touched by so many different forms of cancer. These games allow players/participants, family members and friends to purchase a t-shirt in a color to represent the specific cancer that has affected them personally.

Cocktails for a Cause

Host a cocktail party, invite your friends and share the mission of Connect Thru Cancer.

Your guests can make a tax-deductible donation in honor of the host, in memory of a loved one, or just because.

     How Are You Connected?

We believe most of us are directly affected by a cancer diagnosis at some point in our lives.

This campaign allows individuals to purchase a “How Are You Connected” card with our logo and a blank space to write how/who connects them to the fight against cancer. These cards can then be displayed to show the impact of cancer in our community.
If interested, please email
