To the Editor:
As we approach National Volunteer Appreciation Week, the American Lung Association of the Northeast wishes to call attention to the volunteers who give their time and talent to further our mission of saving lives by preventing lung disease and improving lung health.
Our organization could not run as smoothly and effectively as it does without our dedicated volunteers. Day in and day out, our volunteers give their time and, more importantly, their support to help us reach the millions in our region affected by lung disease and air pollution.
Volunteers wear many different hats. From board members who dedicate endless hours to our mission, to the more than 700 who spend Father’s Day weekend at the Trek Across Maine or at one of our events across the Northeast, and even those who pass out healthy air flyers at the State House, our volunteers all play an equally crucial role in the organization.
On behalf of the staff at the American Lung Association of the Northeast, I would like to say thank you to each and every one of our volunteers – for all that you do. To learn more about the various ways to volunteer with the American Lung Association of the Northeast, visit www.LungNE.org.
