National Volunteer Week is April 15 through April 21 this year, and it is an annual celebration to promote and show appreciation for volunteerism in the United States. As the world’s leading Voluntary Health Organization in Alzheimer’s care, support and research, the Alzheimer’s Association relies on dedicated, passionate volunteers to drive its mission forward.
In Green Bay, the Association would like to recognize Evelynn Schneider for her time as a volunteer. She comes into the office almost weekly to help assist our office manager, enter data, file and do whatever else is asked of her. She often comes into the office on an hour’s notice when she is called and asked for help.
Evelynn said she volunteers because she is retired and wants to use her time to give back to the community. She finds it rewarding to help out and know that she is making a difference in the lives of those suffering from Alzheimer’s.
The Alzheimer’s Association cannot thank Evelynn and all of their volunteers enough for their passion and dedication to the Association’s mission. Alzheimer’s Association Greater Wisconsin Chapter’s Executive Director, Laurie Schill says “As the world’s largest voluntary health organization devoted to Alzheimer’s care, research and advocacy, volunteers are the heart of the Alzheimer’s Association. We have committee members help us plan and fundraise for events, support group facilitators, community educators who lead our family education programs and office volunteers who help us in numerous ways. We cannot say THANK YOU enough for what they do to drive our mission forward
