The Candy Striper

Bake Back America created Candy Striper as a platform for volunteers to connect with recipients facing medical challenges and emotional stress. This initiative encourages a long lasting friendship through weekly communication and bonding sessions.

My name is Abby Zaroff and I am excited to help children feel better during these difficult time. Unfortunately, I have had a family member who also faced these challenges and having mentors, therapy dogs, and different crafts and games cheered her up during the hard times. I deeply enjoy helping others and putting smiles on children’s faces. My goal is to make a difference in people’s lives.
