Volunteers are the core of Gilda’s Club NYC and we would not be able to offer our free program to cancer patients and their families without the time, energy, and commitment of our volunteers.
Gilda’s Club NYC offers a range of opportunities for individuals to volunteer, from an afternoon to an ongoing basis. Help support our organization while meeting new people and being one of 300 volunteers who last year provided more than 3,465 hours of service – the equivalent of $81,565 in savings.
