(Will train on anything and everything = great learning experience)

Project Purple is a 501c3, nonprofit organization. We are a nation-wide charity that is involved in marathons as well as smaller events to raise funds. We provide grants to those currently battling and contribute critical funds to research centers. All of this is managed from our home office her in Seymour, CT. There is NEVER a dull moment as there is always something to be done. Come get involved and join our team!

Make your own schedule with flexible days and hours. Ideally, we would like to secure two volunteers for at least two hours per day, one day a week. Our office is open Monday-Friday 9am-5pm but would love the help anytime between 10am-4pm.
