Gilda’s Club NYC recognizes all of our volunteers who give of their time, talents, and passion to our free cancer support program every week, every month, and every year. Annually we have over 300 active volunteers who are eager to step up and help in any way they can – especially in our first year offering a virtual program.
A member recently shared a video thanking all those that support our free cancer support program and part of her message explained why it is so important to her: “Gilda’s Club for me has been an integral part of my healing journey, a place where I can go to cry, to laugh, to just be. But always loved, always understood and always embraced. Gilda’s Club for me has truly been a beacon of light in the dark.” Our volunteers are a huge part of why members feel this way when they come to Gilda’s Club NYC.
In the last year volunteers have donated hours of their time and they adapted alongside us as we launched virtual healthy lifestyle workshops, educational lectures, social activities and support groups. And they never stop asking us what more they could do. We are constantly amazed at the generosity and dedication of our volunteers and we are so thankful for their support but more importantly, so are our members.
To all of our volunteers – we miss seeing you around the Clubhouse and look forward to getting back to it as soon as it is safe.
Thank you for being a part of our Gilda’s Club NYC family, we could not do it without you.
