National MS Society - Mid America


Make your mark against Multiple Sclerosis

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society funds more MS research, offers more services to people with MS, provides more professional education programs and advances more MS advocacy efforts than any other MS organization in the world. Through its home office and fifty-state network of chapters, the National MS Society provides assistance to over a million people annually in its continuing mission to end the devastating effects of multiple sclerosis. The Mid America Chapter serves 159 counties in Kansas and Missouri.

Seeking out and engaging volunteers to the MS cause is at the very core of our business. Each year the Society organizes a series of community events that provide many opportunities for the enthusiastic volunteer. The Society offers two key fundraising activities: Bike MS, and Walk MS Walk. The Society also engages volunteers to help influence law-makers at the federal, state and municipal levels toward legislation important to people with MS. The Society is looking for passionate volunteers with expertise in areas such as: marketing communications, public relations, corporate and donor development, medical, legal, administrative and organizational expertise.

Mission Statement

We mobilize people and resources to drive research for a cure and to address the challenges of everyone affected by MS.

Would you recommend National MS Society - Mid America?

by Amy K. from Omaha, NE (Administrator for this Organization) (January 18, 2011)
This is a fantastic place to volunteer. Everyone is so nice and helpful. They even have treats once in a while. The projects I have been given have been really interesting and the staff is really great at explaining everything that needs to be done. They are very appreciative of everything I do for them and all of the volunteers are very pleasent to me and we all work well together. The events that take place for the society are a lot of fun and I really enjoy attending them and visiting with the clients. I have a nephew and 2 cousins who have MS and the society is a real asset to them and their families. They offer a wide variety of help and activities for all of their clients. If you are looking for a great place to volunteer with a rewarding outcome, I would recommend the MS Society!!!!!

It took a long time to get through the application process. I felt like my time there was unappreciated and they were unorganized. Most volunteers I saw during my time only lasted about a week or two. One older lady was put on an assignment where they had her copying for about 6 hours: She lasted only 2 days. It is a shame because MS needs to be wiped out.
