Why I Volunteer

“…with the Alzheimer’s Association…I can truly make a difference. I appreciate the support and education that they provide to me and my team and the families that I serve.”
          – Jamie Yockin, Bethany Village, 8+ years volunteering

"For the past 16 years I have participated in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s™. With the help of the Alzheimer’s Association, my sponsors feel they can contact me when the disease strikes their family or friends. My awareness of the many available resources is helpful to them and it makes me feel like I am doing more than fundraising.”
– Sally Lied, 16+ years volunteering

“As someone who has lost three members of her family to Alzheimer’s Disease, volunteering gives me an opportunity to increase awareness and provide hope and help to others.  I'm proud to be part of the Alzheimer's Association’s team of caring and dedicated health care professionals, staff and volunteers.  It's very rewarding to know that I'm truly making a difference.”
– Linda Schorr, 1+ years volunteering
