Disability group launches capital campaign
STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. – Friends of Disabled Adults and Children (FODAC), which will be an exhibitor at the upcoming Medtrade Spring, has launched a campaign to raise $1.5 million by the end of 2016. FODAC will apply the funds toward facility upgrades and paying off the mortgage on its corporate headquarters. “This campaign will help FODAC better leverage HME donations across the state for the benefit of the community,” said CEO Chris Brand. The nonprofit, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, provides more than $10 million annually in HME and supplies to those living with disabilities. The goal of the “Keeping People with Disabilities Moving Campaign” is to improve FODAC’s effectiveness in three ways: warehouse and product flow improvements, facility improvements, and financial improvements.
