National Volunteer Week 2020 — A Thanks from NC Leadership

Dear Association Volunteers in NC,

On behalf of all we serve, thank you for all you do for us as a volunteer.  We are grateful for you all year, but wanted to pause during Volunteer Appreciation Week to express special appreciation.

This year in particular, your true spirit and resilience in light of the COVID-19 pandemic has been awe-inspiring. The health and safety of you, our volunteers and constituents, remain our driver as we address COVID-19 and as we continue to pursue our mission, today and in the longer term.  As an integral part of the Alzheimer’s Association, we wanted to thank you as we evolve into this new way of delivering our mission. During this time, we have watched our volunteers spring into action, making calls to constituents, taking our programming and our support groups virtual, and reaching out to our legislators — standing beside us in all aspects of supporting those we serve.  THANK YOU!

We continue to be grateful that you are a part of our team and have chosen to share your time and talents helping those affected by Alzheimer’s disease and all other dementia.  In partnership with our staff, you have expanded our reach into communities, provided personalized support to those impacted by the disease and moved the mission forward with your passion.

We hope your volunteer experience has been rewarding, enjoyable, and worthwhile as an Association partner.  We rely on volunteers like you from our special events to our programs, services, advocacy, operations, and office support; volunteers are a part of every facet of our organization.

The Alzheimer’s Association leads the way to end Alzheimer’s and all other dementia — by accelerating global research, driving risk reduction and early detection, and maximizing quality care and support.  We are grateful for your compassion and your awareness, and for seeing the need and responding.

Thank you for answering that call and for your continued support of our vision: A world without Alzheimer’s and all other dementia.

We look forward to another year of work alongside you.
