Volunteers needed for Jimmy Fund’s Theatre Program

The Jimmy Fund is looking for local movie lovers with big hearts and a few spare hours to help raise money for cancer care and research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute this summer. The Jimmy Fund/Variety Children’s Charities Theatre Collections Program is seeking volunteers to pass collection canisters to guests at the Fairfield Theatre, 40 Black Rock Turnpike, Fairfield following a brief Jimmy Fund trailer that will be shown before a feature film.

Volunteers are needed during select movie times each day of the week through July 30 at theaters in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, and Ohio. All contributions go directly to the Jimmy Fund, which supports lifesaving adult and pediatric patient care and cancer research at Dana-Farber.

Now in its 66th year, the program launched in 1949 and is the Jimmy Fund’s oldest annual fundraising effort. Since its inception the program has raised more than $30 million. In its early years, the Theatre Program attracted the support of such legendary stars including James Cagney, Loretta Young, Bing Crosby, and baseball’s Ted Williams.

Volunteers can earn incentives, depending on how much time they commit to the program. These range from a volunteer t-shirt, to complimentary National Amusements movie passes, to Blue Man Group or Boston Red Sox tickets.

To volunteer or to learn more, visit jimmyfund.org/theatre or call 617-582-7724.
