The annual ALS Flower Day campaign is coming up. Once again it is time to try and do a small part in helping those with ALS find a cure.
ALS stands for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and is also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Between 1,500 and 2,000 Canadians currently live with ALS. The cause is unknown. There is no known cure or treatment that prolongs life significantly – yet. They need our help to raise funds.
The Flower Day event this year is scheduled for Saturday, June 7th, at the Shelbourne Plaza. They need volunteer collectors, willing to stand and collect donations for a 2 hour shift. Last year they collected over $800.00 a the Shelbourne collection station, which was the highest in the last 10 years.
They are looking for volunteers to help with the afternoon shifts 12:00 noon to 2:00 pm, and then from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. You can sign up for a shift in pairs, so there are two of you for each shift.
