Grace Lutheran Will be Supporting the Alzheimer’s Association

Delaware Valley Chapter During September

           The recent death of Glenn Campbell reminds us that the war against Alzheimer’s Disease is not over.  Currently, five million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s Disease; Alzheimer’s is the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S.  During the month of September Grace will be raising money for the Alzheimer’s Association – Delaware Valley chapter.  Envelopes for this cause can be found in the narthex.  Please make checks out to Grace Lutheran, with “Alzheimer’s Association” in the subject line.  If you are a caregiver, or are interested in learning more about Alzheimer’s disease, please check out the website at http://www.alz.org/delval/    or call  1 (800) 272-3900.
