LBDA

Volunteer Corner: March 2014

Volunteers Needed

LBDA is a small organization with a six-person staff. Because of our small size, we rely on our volunteers to provide the much-needed support to those living with LBD and their caregivers. LBDA is currently seeking volunteers to moderate our forum. We are in need of 2-3 volunteers to welcome new members and answer questions on a variety of topics. The Forum Moderator volunteer role is web-based and while important, does not require you to be an expert. It simply requires a little training, compassion and 30 minutes to 1 hour of your time, two to three days per week. To learn more about this role and other volunteer roles, contact Toy Rooks at lendahand@lbda.org.
