The ALS Association Evergreen Chapter has been named Bonneville Seattle’s Charity of the Month for April, for their vision to create a world without ALS.
Established in 1985, the ALS Association is the only national non-profit organization fighting Lou Gehrig’s Disease on every front.
The Evergreen Chapter was founded in January of 1999 to serve the needs of those living with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) and their caregivers.
The ALS Association is the only national not-for-profit health organization dedicated solely to the fight against ALS. ALSA covers all the bases – research, patient and community services, public education, and advocacy – in providing help and hope to those facing the disease.
The ALS Association (National Office and the Evergreen Chapter) operates under a shared mission: to empower people with Lou Gehrig’s disease and their families to live fuller lives by providing them with compassionate care and support, and to lead the fight to cure and treat ALS through global, cutting-edge research.
The Evergreen Chapter focuses primarily on helping local patients and families live with ALS while the National Office focuses primarily on research and advocacy. The Chapter supports the National Office through revenue sharing and research contributions. The National Office supports the Chapters by providing up-to-date information and materials.
