About

Do you have customer service, sales, marketing or event experience? Do you have 4 to 8 hours during normal business hours to put toward a great cause? If you've been impacted by Alzheimer's disease and want to get more involved then our Longest Day team needs your help!

The Alzheimer's Association, Greater Missouri Chapter is looking for volunteers to support The Longest Day, a tribute event to honor those facing Alzheimer's on the longest day of the year. Thousands of Longest Day tributes take place between September 21 and June 21 each year. Each participant creates their own special tribute by doing something they love or something to honor a loved one affected by the disease. Then, on June 21, all participants join our day of honor by sharing pictures of their events and the loved ones they honored. In 2017, 13,000 people participated in over 5,000 tributes and raised $5.5 Million for the Alzheimer's Association.

The Alzheimer's Association is seeking volunteers to share their time and champion our cause by providing office support to The Longest Day event. We've grown from 18 teams that raised $20,000 in 2014 to 200 teams that raised $289,000 in 2017. We are celebrating our 3rd place finish in 2017 and aiming for 1st in the country in 2018!

To support this rapid growth, volunteers and or interns are needed to help with a wide variety of activities including: updating excel participant and prospect lists; mailing support materials to participants; processing donations; setting up dine-outs and collection sites; planning open house events and parties;requesting in-kind donations of items to be used for auctions, raffles and door prizes and event marketing such as social media, newsletters and calendar listings.

Volunteers will work 4 to 8 hours per week on a schedule that works best for them. Join The Longest Day volunteer team aka "Team Awesome" and be a part of this awesome event that draws thousands of new people to the Association each year. Come find out what all the buzz is about #THELONGESTDAY!
