National Volunteer Week is a time to celebrate and thank our volunteers.
At the Alzheimer Society, volunteer time and energy are essential to help us support people living with dementia. We really could not do what we do to support families affected by dementia and raise money to find a cure, without volunteers. We value your experience, your input, your enthusiasm and the opportunity to work with you.
Thanks to each and every one of our volunteers at the Alzheimer Society of Manitoba!
To Be a Volunteer
To be a volunteer, it takes…
Generosity, a willingness to give your time to others
Understanding, because their lives might be very different from your own
Empathy, an ability to put yourself in someone else’s shoes and feel what they must feel
Compassion, to truly care about making someone else’s life better
Patience, because the process doesn’t always go as smoothly as it might
Dedication, to stick with the project and see it through
You’ve shown these qualities and so much more, so thank you for all that you do.
