On Tuesday, November 27, 2018, the ALS Society of BC is participating to the annual #GivingTuesday, a Global Day of giving back. It is a day where charities, companies and individuals join together to share commitments, rally for favourite causes and think about others. As a participating charity of #GivingTuesday, the ALS Society BC is requesting your support to help raise its annual budget of $700,000 for Equipment Loan Program.
The Equipment Loan Program
The Equipment Loan Program of the ALS Society of BC is designed to help people cope with the daily challenges of decreasing mobility and independence through obtaining basic and essential assistive equipment. This includes mobility equipment, lift equipment, beds and accessories, communication devices and bathroom aids. All equipment loaned is available at no charge to registered ALS patients in British Columbia. The equipment loan program is one of the principal objectives of the ALS Society of BC. It is the best essential care that can be provided not only to the patients but also to their families and caregivers.
This year our goal is to raise $50,000. To help us reach this goal, some of our donors will be matching every $1 raised throughout the campaign, up to a total of $20,000!
Help us show the power of hope to people living with ALS in BC.
All the best,
The Team at the ALS Society of BC
