MS Service Day: August 24, 2013
July 16, 2013
MS Service Day is a North Florida Chapter program that matches volunteers to families affected by MS who need household chores and repairs. Yard work, household repairs, moving furniture, scrubbing windows, de-cluttering, organizing, painting, pressure washing, and heaving cleaning are some of the services volunteers will assist with.
If you are interested in making a difference in the community, MS Service Day is a great opportunity for you to volunteer. Volunteers will be assigned to service site teams and will complete services for people living with MS in the first coast area: Baker, Clay, Duval, Nassau and St. Johns county.
This is a great opportunity to make a huge impact in the lives of people affected by MS in just one day!
The registration deadline is August 9, 2013. For everyone's protection, background checks will be performed on all participants and volunteers.

About Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are leading to better understanding and moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 2.3 million people worldwide.
