What do volunteers do?
All members of the Board of Directors and its committees are
volunteers. These members of the community work closely together and
with the staff to plan and implement the activities of Alzheimer’s
Arkansas in the community.
Volunteers also work in the office, helping with tasks such as
preparing bulk mail, filing and copying, inputting data, writing thank
you notes or hand addressing invitations, organizing brochures and the
Volunteers answer the afterhours Caregiver phone, offering support
and information to family caregivers and others who call. Special
training is provided for the volunteers.
Volunteers facilitate caregiver support groups throughout the state.
A day-long training is provided to facilitators.
Finally, volunteers are a big part of any special event we do, such
as the annual caregiver symposium and the Walks,
Amp Out Alz,
Thunder & Chrome,
Lights to Remember,
Art to Remember.
Thousands of volunteer hours each year help Alzheimer’s Arkansas
fulfill its mission.
