  • Candlelighters, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is a parent-run organized support network. We educate, support, serve and advocate for families of children with cancer, bereaved families, survivors of childhood cancer, and the professionals that care for us.

    Volunteers are needed to help at our monthly events for families with a child with cancer. These events provide a low-stress way for families to meet each other and celebrate life with those who understand. We need people to participate in the children’s activities while the parents get a chance to offer each other mutual support.

    There are volunteer opportunities available at our annual family camp held during the summer. Do you have a special talent you would like to share? Do you enjoy craft activities or hiking? This event is a three-day weekend retreat for the entire family held in June. We have a need for people to help in many areas. Volunteers will be required to attend a mandatory volunteer training meeting in late spring.

    We need volunteers to assist with misc. office work – data entry, filing and newsletter mailings. We also seek Spanish translation, for our written documents and at our events.

    Do you have an interest in coordinating a fundraising event or serving on a fundraising planning committee?

    Teen volunteers are always welcome!
