LUPUS FOUNDATION OF NORTHERN CALIFORNIA
October 17, 2013

I am a Senior in high school and my best friend and my great aunt are both Lupus patients. In knowing the effects of this disease on an individual, my mother and I searched for a place that we could volunteer at that would help us understand the disease more. We also just really wanted to show our support to all the strong Lupus patients. We received an e-mail that asked if we help send out newsletters and we immediately responded. A few days later, we came in and were greeted with warm smiles as we were introduced to all the other volunteers. All the people in the office were very passionate about what they were doing, whether it was labeling envelopes, folding papers, and even making calls for donations. The warm feeling I felt when I was volunteering, made me want to return to help out at another time. Since then, I have volunteered several times and have gotten close to the staff and other volunteers. I believe that this nonprofit organization does a wonderful job in spreading and supporting Lupus awareness and is a perfect place to seek help and information about this disease.
