Volunteer at a Society office
Community offices are at the heart of planning and implementing Society fundraising activities, delivering services, promoting healthy public policies and educating the public about cancer and prevention. Society offices support community work by delivering programs and support materials and engaging in advocacy work with the government.
Office volunteers play a vital role in the day-to-day support of community office teams. Volunteers often work on a regular basis and provide assistance with data entry, filing, photocopying and posting mail. Additional tasks can include processing donations, preparing receipts, greeting the public, answering phones, providing information and pitching in with events and projects.
