Purple Pulpit Sunday - June 10, 2018

We need you to help make a difference in the lives of you church family!


As part of Alzheimer's Brain Awareness Month this June, please consider hosting Purple Pulpit Sunday at your place of worship.

On June 10, 2018 (or another day that works with your schedule) your church can unite with others across Alabama to raise awareness about Alzheimer's and join the movement to eradicate this devastating disease. The purpose of Purple Pulpit is to bring attention to the tremendous burden that Alzheimer's and other related dementias are having on the African American community; to distribute facts about Alzheimer's and the resources offered by the Association; and to encourage and support all persons living with Alzheimer's and their caregivers.

Also, join us for The Longest Day - a DIY fundraiser to symbolize the daily struggles and honor those in the community that are affected by Alzheimer's and other dementias. The Longest day is a day of love and action; it's a personalized fundraiser and can be any activity that speaks to your church family. It can be as simple as a 2nd collection during the service or a car wash for donations. Learn more and register your church team at alz.org/thelongestday.

If you would like to offer this FREE program to your congregation, please complete and return the Participation Form.

We will package a ship educational materials and literature to help you implement this activity within your church and educate your members on the seriousness of Alzheimer's disease and other related dementias.
