Saluting Our Volunteers

April 21-27 is National Volunteer Week. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our volunteers for their contributions to the American Lung Association.  As the oldest voluntary health agency in the country, we have a long heritage of working with volunteers.  Since 1904, active and engaged volunteers have been the American Lung Association’s greatest asset.

Last year more than 311,000 volunteers across the country served in numerous capacities.  Volunteers plan and assist with special events, facilitate health education programs, participate in advocacy efforts, serve on leadership councils and boards, serve as ambassadors for the Association, provide clerical and administrative assistance and support our mission in many valuable ways! 

As a Lung Association volunteer, your dedication ensures that our vision of a world free of lung disease becomes closer to reality with every passing day.  Without your donation of time, talent, wisdom and leadership, we could not have achieved our many successes in advocacy, research and health education.  You have worked diligently to further the mission of the American Lung Association.  Thank you for all you do to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease!
