Thank you for your interest in giving back to the community. Our volunteers are what makes Miles Perret Cancer Services (MPCS) such a special place. There are many capacities in which we can utilize your individual talents and interests. We need volunteers on a weekly basis for office support and periodic mailings. We also need volunteers to help with our fundraising events such as Games of Acadiana, MPCS Triathlon, and Camellia Crossing. Please fill out the volunteer application below to get started! We also invite you to visit us at our Kaliste Saloom location to learn more.

Front Desk Volunteer Do you enjoy that cheerful voice on the phone? Donna is one of our front desk volunteers who answers each phone call with a smile! Her willingness to jump in and help with any task no matter how small warms our heart.
Games of Acadiana Volunteer Ever wonder how our events stay so clean? We have an excellent trash crew organized and run by Ronnie. He makes sure every trash can is in place, emptied, and re-emptied all the way to the end of each event. We can offer clean, family-focused events because of great volunteers like him.
Poster Delivery Volunteer When it comes to getting the word out about our events, volunteers play a crucial role! We distribute posters around town and in outlying areas through the help of volunteers. Tressie has been committed to this role for a couple of years visiting the same area, and now the stores recognize her on sight. We appreciate her commitment to the cause!
Calendar Volunteer Once a month, we mail out calendars to clients, and volunteers help us fold and seal each one. Alice brings her sense of humor and diligent hands to the table each month, and we love having her here!
