Dartmouth College Cancer Society

Many people undergoing treatment for cancer find it difficult to perform routine chores and feats involving physical strength. The Dartmouth College Cancer Society sends student volunteers to the homes of people living with cancer on weekends when school is in session.

Past projects have included raking leaves, cleaning gutters, stacking wood, shoveling snow, moving furniture, and food shopping. All of these services are provided for free for patients with cancer and their families who do not have the time or energy to attend to these tasks themselves.

To schedule a visit from a Dartmouth College Cancer Society volunteer, contact Patient and Family Support Services at (603) 650-7751 or via email at cancersupport@hitchcock.org.
