Volunteer Opportunities

Direct Services

Ride Provider

Volunteers are needed to give occasional rides to medical appointments for clients who don’t have reliable transportation or are too weak to drive. They may also be requested to accompany the client into their doctor’s office to provide support during the appointment.

Friendly Correspondent

For people who are looking to volunteer in a meaningful way, but are very limited with their time, an option is to maintain regular correspondence with clients via letters/cards, phone calls or e-mails.

Cancer Resource Center Office

Volunteers staff our reception area during regular business hours. They answer phones, greet visitors, meet with clients, and do projects as needed.

Cancer Support at Cayuga Medical Center

Volunteers are a regular presence in the chemotherapy suite as well as the waiting room of Radiation Medicine. They greet patients as they arrive for appointments, talk with family members, serve coffee and snacks, and offer general support.


Non-direct Services


Our biggest fundraiser of the year requires hundreds of volunteers and months of planning. Take part in the action by helping with flyer distributions, contacting local businesses, identifying team leaders to raise money, and much, much more.

Garden Group

Be part of the seasonal crop of volunteers who keep our house and yard looking beautiful. This involves watering and weeding the lovely garden as well as cleaning up the back yard when needed.


Board, Committees, & Internships

Board of Directors

The board of directors is responsible for policy development and oversight of the entire organization. Board members play a key role in CRC relations with the greater community.


Development, Finance, Client Services, and other committees are comprised of community members, board representatives, and staff. Individuals with a genuine interest in the mission of CRC, who communicate well with others, and who bring a wide range of interests and backgrounds are sought to complement the roles of board and staff.
