October Volunteer of the Month: Maria Matteo

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!

  • We anticipate that some activities may need to be cancelled, modified or rescheduled; we will communicate with you directly regarding changes to upcoming plans, so please watch your email.
  • You can find the latest updates about our activities on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
  • For the most recent information about the coronavirus (COVID-19), The ALS Association recommends that you reference the websites for the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and state and local health authorities.
