FODAC expands outreach

Thursday, July 12, 2018

TUCKER, Ga. – Friends of Disabled Adults and Children and Goodwill North Georgia are partnering to collect, repair and redistribute home medical equipment and assistive technology through a 2018 Collaborative Innovation Grant from the Home Depot Foundation. As part of the partnership, the organizations have established 10 new HME collection sites at Goodwill facilities. “Something as simple as a wheelchair or a shower bench can totally change a person’s life by unlocking their independent spirit, allowing them to engage more fully in work, community and life,” said Chris Brand, FODAC CEO. “Partnering with Goodwill will enable us to collect more equipment and help more people in need.” FODAC also received two 2018 Collaborative Innovation Grants in February.
