Make a Difference as a Volunteer

Volunteers are an essential part of Jimmy Fund Scooper Bowl® presented by Herb Chambers. From greeting guests and scooping ice cream to distributing water or spoons, volunteers help make Scooper Bowl a success every year.

Volunteering is a great way to support Dana-Farber patients and their families and get involved in the community. Plus, you’ll get some sweet rewards!

Scooper Bowl Gear

All volunteers on our “Scooper Crew” will receive a complimentary t-shirt to wear during the event and to take home.

Free Ice Cream

After your three-hour volunteer shift, stick around to enjoy all-you-can-eat ice cream from our generous partners.

Giving Back

Even sweeter than ice cream is the feeling of helping others. Volunteers are crucial in making Scooper Bowl a success and supporting Dana-Farber patients.
