The core of any non-profit, charitable organization is the volunteers who dedicate countless hours assisting with various tasks such as:

  • Participating in the Manulife Walk for Memories
  • Participating in the annual Krispy Kreme/Coffeebreak Event
  • Office duties
  • Governance
  • Facilitating Support Groups

Volunteers are very important to our Chapter. Without volunteers, our office would not be able to provide the services we currently offer. It is our hope that our committed volunteers will continue to assist us with our mission and new volunteers will join forces with us to carry on the work of the Alzheimer Society of Timmins-Porcupine District.
