April 15-21 is National Volunteer Week and at JDRF we have so much to be thankful for. National Volunteer Week is an opportunity to recognize and thank volunteers who lend their time, talent, voice and support to causes they care about in their community.
JDRF was started by volunteers committed to creating a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D) for their children—and everyone else affected by the disease. Without their vision, it would have been impossible to grow into the organization we are today—or to devote so much time and money to funding T1D research. We celebrate the power of everyone to make a profound impact with their time and talents. That’s why we ensure our volunteers are best placed, trained, recognized and supported at every level. As a JDRF volunteer, you’ll join a tight-knit—but far-reaching—community that truly cares about finding a cure for everyone affected by this devastating disease. Your service will directly impact our ability to fund T1D research.
Because of all the remarkable volunteers who are dedicated to turning Type One into Type None, life is better for people living with T1D. Thank you! You give so much and we are very grateful.
As one of the most impactful volunteer-driven organizations in the world, JDRF depends on volunteer passion to drive our mission—and talent to keep us going.
