Wonderful Woman living with ALS in Punta Gorda requests a Visiting Volunteer

Save to Favorites

The ALS Association Florida Chapter

Do you have a few hours a month to make a huge difference in someone’s life by assisting with meal preparation and deep household cleaning? A wonderful woman living with ALS is Punta Gorda is requesting help twice a month any morning, depending on your schedule.

Becoming a Visiting Volunteer with The ALS Association Florida Chapter is a heartwarming experience. We require potential Visiting Volunteers to complete an online training process including two reference checks, a short phone interview, and a background check. Volunteers assist with simple tasks of everyday living and are not allowed to help with medical or personal care, finances, or transportation.

If this unique opportunity interests you, please respond to this posting or contact Becky Ford, bford@alsafl.org, (813)637-9000 ext. 133, for further information. We hope you consider joining the team!

Volunteers must be at least twenty-one. Because our Chapter is small and serves nearly 1500 people living with ALS in Florida, we do not have the capacity to screen homes of our constituents prior to a volunteer visiting. When a match is made, we provide the volunteer with a home address.
