We're always in need of Volunteers to support our work.

Volunteer training is ongoing.


Please call 586-1642 or download and complete our volunteer application to get started.


Special Event assistance

We hold several events during the year to raise awareness as well as financial resources. Each benefit for Cancer Connection relies on the varied skills and dedication of volunteers.


The current roster of benefits includes the WMass Mother’s Day Half Marathon in May and the Harvest Celebration Dinner & Silent Auction in October. Other events spring up from time to time through the inspiration of volunteers, staff and the community. Volunteers and staff help with benefits designed and run by the community, including Monte’s Campout, and the Bridge of Flowers Road Race in August. If you would like to get involved and participate in an event or help as a volunteer, please download and complete a volunteer application here and provide our Event Coordinator with your availability and a phone number to reach you. Volunteers can email events {at} or call Cancer Connection (413) 586-1642 to sign up.


Administrative help

There are numerous tasks in the office that keep Cancer Connection operating smoothly. Can you design flyers for upcoming workshops or help with mailings? If you’d like to help, call us and let’s discuss the possibilities.
