Volunteers are an integral part of keeping any non-profit running, and especially important when we are talking about an organization that is supporting a community that has a chronic illness. There is no task too unimportant, from making sure a phone call is picked up when someone reaches out for help, to lending a shoulder when someone needs to talk, to giving advice when someone doesn’t know where to turn on their journey through this disease.
And, there is no shortage of tasks to be done! It is through the work of dedicated volunteers that we all stand stronger and are able provide the services, programming and support that we offer to the MS Community.
Volunteering requires time and effort, but when you know that you are touching the lives of everyone living with MS, the reward far outweighs the work. If you are interested in volunteering opportunities with the MSAV, email MSAV4HOPE@gmail.com.
