The ALS Association Logo

A gentleman with ALS would love your help weeding his garden! He anticipates that this task would take 2-3 hours monthly, but whatever time you're able to give would be appreciated. He can provide all supplies (bucket/gloves/knee pads) and would enjoy watching the garden being taken care of while sitting outside. Ideal times for a volunteer to help would be any day between approximately 10:30 am-3:30 pm. This opportunity is part of the ALS Association's Family Assistance Program: https://www.als.org/mn-nd-sd/mn-nd-sd/local-care-services/family-assistance-program
