Would you recommend The ALS ASSOCIATION Evergreen Chapter?

The people at this organization are wonderful to be around-fun, personable, and so appreciative. If you're lucky enough to work with them all in a group, there is so much laughter, I've laughed 'till I've cried at times. If you work in the office, it is aesthetically a nice environment. The work they do is so important. They are in charge of providing unique and critical support to families and patients caught in a devastating and shocking disease. This is a grass roots organization begun by one couple and their family that has grown exponentially during my involvement over the last six years and has been recognized nationally for its service and innovative program development and delivery. There are services this group provides that the families can't find anywhere else. Try it-you'll love being a part of what they do.
