Volunteer for Bankers Life and Casualty Company's Forget Me Not Days® May 17 & 18, 2013

What are you doing Friday, May 17or Saturday, May 18? Could you spare a few hours to volunteer for the 11th annual Forget Me Not Days®?

Established in 2003 by national life and health insurer Bankers Life and Casualty Company, Forget Me Not Days benefits Alzheimer's Association chapters nationwide. On May 17 and 18, this fundraiser will bring volunteers as well as Bankers agents and employees to streets and storefronts as a way to raise awareness of and funds for Alzheimer's disease. Bankers has helped raise more than $2.9 million for the Alzheimer's Association through Forget Me Not Days as well as through corporate donations.

Volunteers will work with their local Alzheimer's Association office to learn where they will be stationed, receiving gardening aprons and canisters to collect donations on the day of the event. In exchange for donations, volunteers will hand out specially marked packets of Forget-Me-Not flower seeds, courtesy of Bankers Life. Seed packets list the Association's 24/7 toll-free Helpline, 800.272.3900, as well as its website, www.alz.org. One hundred percent of donations will support Alzheimer's care, support and research.

We need your help to fight Alzheimer's, the sixth leading cause of death in the United States.

To learn more or sign up as a volunteer in Chicago or in one of several surrounding communities, go to http://www.alzheimers-illinois.org/tagdays or contact Bethany Hein, Manager, External Relationships at bhein@alz.org or 847.779.6952.
