A 70-year-old woman with ALS would love a volunteer to help her with household chores and/or meal prep. Her schedule is quite flexible any day of the week between 10 am-3 pm. She would ideally like a volunteer who is able to visit weekly for approximately 1-2 hours at a time.

If you have an extra hour or two in your 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:
