Give the Gift of Hope
This holiday season, consider donating to the ALS Society of Alberta! In 2012, we were able to provide support to 286 people living with ALS in the province, as well as their families. We were also able to loan out over 1,400 pieces of equipment to allow people living with ALS to stay in their own home as long as possible, while living safely and comfortably. With your support, we are able to provide HOPE for our clients and their families.
With the support of your friends and family, we could purchase the following items for our Equipment Loan Program:
