Volunteers are a valuable part of any nonprofit and BAG IT is fortunate to have some wonderful individuals who take time out of their busy lives to volunteer and support us on a regular basis.  We appreciate that you share your skills, talents, time and heart for BAG IT!

How do BAG IT Volunteers make a difference?  They . . .

  • Make chemo caps
  • Write thank you notes
  • Help with inventory

For some people volunteering is about giving, but for the likes of our volunteers it is a way
of living.

What our volunteers have to say:

“When I was introduced to Bag It, by a co-worker, I was looking for a way to give back. We were relatively new to Tucson and had lost quite a few family members and close friends to all types of cancer. . I feel I get so much more from this Organization than I give. Every year that goes by I meet new people, get to reconnect with old friends, but most importantly, I am surrounded by such a positive, uplifting bunch of people no matter what the Event. This will be my 10th year volunteering with BAG IT and I am honored they let me keep coming back!” – Anne

“I volunteer at BAG IT because I love seeing the smiles on patients when they share how our “BAG ITs” have touched their lives and helped them in this most trying time. So being at a booth and spreading the word on all we do, makes me feel connected to our community and part of something amazing.” – Jacque

“While everyone is so busy these days, it’s important to remember that people are in need and appreciate your help.”  – Stan

Thank you for being a Volunteer!  – Sherri, Joyce, Mindy & Annettra
