August Volunteer of the Month: Margaret Morrison

Helen Keller once said, "Alone we can do little, together we can do so much." How true that is! It is the many helping hands and kind hearts of our volunteers that enable the Greater Philadelphia Chapter to comfort and strengthen those who live with ALS. Thank you to each and every one of our incredible volunteers!
