FAP: Cleaning

A man with ALS and his wife would love a volunteer to come help with cleaning once a month for up to 2 hours at a time. They would be grateful if this volunteer could help tidy up their dining room, kitchen, living room, and breezeway: they can take care of bedrooms/bathrooms and deep cleaning. While indoor cleaning would be most helpful to them, they would also be interested in having a volunteer help wash windows twice a year as the seasons change.

If you have 2 hours a month to give, you could help reduce some of this family's stress around managing an ALS diagnosis and we'd love to hear from you! 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
