Make a difference in the lives of people with ALS by supporting our GivingTuesday campaign by volunteering your time and talents. Volunteers are the backbone of our society and a great opportunity to make new friends and contacts, learn new skills, gain work experience or meet volunteer hour requirements for schools and community organizations.

Our society has many volunteering opportunities, including fundraising events around BC, in our main office and various patient services and programs such as support groups, Camp Alohi Lani for kids and more. Our goal is to recruit 20 new volunteers, and we would love to have you as part of our team! Every effort inspires hope and helps bring us one step closer to a world without ALS. Have a question about our volunteer program? Please e-mail us at volunteer@alsbc​.ca.

We are just over two weeks away from the November 29th GivingTuesday annual giving movement driven by individuals, charities, businesses and communities across Canada and countries worldwide. The ALS Society of BC is participating in this year’s Global Day of Generosity which unites millions of Canadians to support the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live. Just as Black Friday and Cyber Monday kick off the holiday shopping season, GivingTuesday is the opening day of the giving season.

Please help us show the power of hope to people living with ALS in BC & Yukon by spreading the word and joining us for a global day of giving. For more information, call us at 1-800-708-3228 or email [email protected].

Why I volunteer for the ALS Society of BC?

“ALS BC makes a positive difference in the lives of clients and their families by improving or enhancing their quality of life through the numerous services they provide.” – Ellen Mahoney

“When my father was diagnosed with ALS in May of 2019, my family relied on the services provided to us through the ALS Society of BC. My father passed away in April of 2020. In my process of grief, I decided I needed to give back to the society that helped us cope with his decline and passing. I am the newly appointed coordinator of the Move to Cure ALS in the Fraser Valley, and I am excited for the opportunity.” – Lauren Compton

“Helping others and understanding is a goal everyone should follow. Reminder, a smile is the same in any language.” – Isabel Kurzawski

Our goal is to raise $200,000.00. Thank you to our “Anonymous Donors” and “Casa Mia Projects Ltd.” who will match donations up to $50,000.00!
