Who We Are Social Impact
We couldn’t imagine not being Deeply Involved
Being engaged with the community and helping those in need is not just something we do, it’s something we love to do. From the Jimmy Fund to AmeriCorps Massachusetts Promise Fellowship, Virtual is committed to our communities. Each year Virtual hosts its Virtual Cares Project and provides employees with 8 hours of paid time off to volunteer.
The Jimmy Fund
The Jimmy Fund is a charity which raises money solely to support adult and pediatric cancer care and research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, Massachusetts. The Fund was launched in 1948 with the help of the Variety Club of New England. The club organized a radio broadcast from the bedside of a young cancer patient, Einar Gustafson, dubbed “Jimmy” to protect his privacy as he was visited by members of the Boston Braves baseball team. Contributions poured in to buy Jimmy a television set so he could watch the Braves play.
