A 55-year-old man with ALS and his wife would love a volunteer help come clean around their home and/or simply visit once a week. The best times for a volunteer to visit would be Monday-Thursday afternoons or evenings for 1-2 hours at a time.

If you have an extra hour or two each week to help a neighbor in need, we'd love to hear from you! This opportunity is part of the ALS Association's Family Assistance Program (this site indicates different states, but the program was recently rolled out in Wisconsin!):
