A-Pass-Along (Extra Hands for ALS)

"Extra Hands for ALS is a national voluntary service movement devoted to the fight against ALS, also called Lou Gehrig's disease. Launched in 2002, Extra Hands is expanding nationally and now operates in many cities in the United States." For more information go to:

This could be a good service program for young people from a church, scout, or youth organization.
As it says at the site: “Students who volunteer to assist families battling ALS become adults better capable of addressing challenges in their own lives and communities.” Also “By helping ALS families with household chores, students provide a valuable service in their communities, and they learn about courage and determination from people facing one of life's most daunting challenges.”
