Thank you, volunteers!
From April 23 to 29, the Alzheimer Society of Thunder Bay celebrates our volunteers who stand amidst Canada’s 12.7 million volunteers during National Volunteer Week.
Volunteers are the most important resource for charitable organizations like ours. At the Alzheimer Society, volunteer time and energy are essential to help us support people living with dementia. Last year alone, our volunteers worked 2,923 hours. The value of their time, effort and dedication exceeded $43,734.
During National Volunteer Week, we recognize the tireless contributions of our volunteers. Your support is absolutely invaluable to our staff, and to families across our community who are living with a dementia diagnosis. Thank you.

The number of Canadians with cognitive impairment, including dementia, is expected to double by 2031. The costs to our health-care system will be enormous. The human cost of this devastating disease cannot be estimated. We must continue to look at new and innovative ways to support the work that needs to be done in our communities.
We really could not do what we do to support people with 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.
