Welcome to Hearts for ALS
Our Mission Statement
Hearts for ALS is an all volunteer organization that is dedicated to making the lives of the ALS patients as comfortable and useful as possible.
Our mission is achieved through volunteer action. We have golf tournaments, walk-a-thons, and other events to raise funds which will then be provided back to the patients in the form of gifts and services to the ALS patients and/or their care givers.
The mission of Hearts for ALS includes providing information and resources to ALS patients. The information resources are provided through our on-going HOPE BAG program in which newly diagnosed patients are given gift bags containing useful information along with small gifts symbolizing much needed hope for the patient and the patient’s family.
Hearts for ALS also provides funds for ALS patients to use for activities and events intended to become lasting and cherished memories for the patient and his or her family. In special cases we also provide grant aide for patients to acquire much needed equipment.

Our hope is to expand our services to the patients of all of the Inland Empire. Our extended service area depends on our volunteer force and available revenue. We appreciate your support and interest.
