Helping Our Neighbors in Need:

FODAC Partners with SunTrust Bank to Collect HME for Disaster Relief Efforts

 

Donations Received on October 20 Will Aid People with Disabilities

in Communities Recovering from Hurricane Florence

 

TUCKER GA (8 October 2018)Friends of Disabled Adults and Children (FODAC), a non-profit organization providing home medical equipment (HME) and services to those living with a disability, and SunTrust Bank are joining forces to support disaster recovery efforts. On Saturday, October 20, volunteers at three North Atlanta locations will collect new and gently used equipment, such as wheelchairs, rollators, walkers and shower benches, which FODAC will refurbish and re-distribute to those in need, particularly those with disabilities recovering from Hurricane Florence in the Carolinas. The coordinated collection drives are scheduled in several locations for Saturday, 20 October 2018, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

 

“We’re pleased to work with FODAC and make it easier for people across metro Atlanta to help those with disabilities, who urgently need this equipment as a result of the devastation from Hurricane Florence,” said Scott Case, SunTrust chief information officer and executive sponsor of the bank’s People with Disabilities Teammate Network. “Helping people quickly recover from the storm underscores our commitment to lighting the way to financial confidence for the communities we serve, SunTrust’s aim is to help people in our communities feel less financial stress, and the medical equipment donated through this drive will assist many individuals and their families, who have lost so much as a result of this storm.”

 

FODAC’s main mission is supplying HME to the mobility impaired and their caregivers, at little or no cost to the recipients. While the Georgia-based non-profit works heavily with disability communities in Georgia and the Southeast, it also responds nationally and globally to those recovering from natural disasters such as earthquakes, floods, tornados and hurricanes. Since FODAC’s work in Louisiana following Hurricane Katrina, 18 states and four territories have received disaster relief donations of HME from FODAC. FODAC has joined VOAD (volunteer organizations active in disaster) and started deploying staff and trucks to the disaster areas during large relief efforts. The organization has recently focused on distributing needed medical equipment to those affected by Hurricane Florence in the Carolinas and the tropical storms in Hawaii. FODAC has received requests from Health and Human Services and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to pitch in with relief efforts.

 

“The twelve months since Harvey hit Houston has seen unprecedented levels of disaster relief for communities and displaced survivors in Houston, Florida, Georgia, Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and the American Samoa Islands,” said Chris Brand, president and CEO of FODAC. “The recent storms and subsequent flooding in the Carolinas and Hawaii have strained our inventory to meet the needs of those recovering from the devastation. We are grateful to SunTrust for sponsoring this HME drive and helping those with disabilities in these areas get their lives back on track.”

 

Equipment and monetary donations will be collected at the following North Atlanta locations on Saturday, 20 October between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.

 

  • Vincent de Paul Thrift Store, 787 Roswell Street NE, Marietta
  • Vincent de Paul Thrift Store, 455 Grayson Highway, Lawrenceville
  • NextStep Atlanta, 1755 Grassland Parkway, Alpharetta

 

Equipment that is especially needed:

 

·         Adaptive strollers

·         Air casts

·         Bathing aids

·         Braces

·         Canes

·         Crutches and forearm crutches

·         Corner chairs

·         Gait trainers

·         Hospital beds

 

·         Manual and electric wheelchairs

·         Rollators

·         Shower supports

·         Scooters

·         Specialized mattresses (not regular mattresses)

·         Standers

·         Toilet supports

·         Walkers

 

 

“Our role usually starts when people leave the shelters,” Brand explained. “We are going to be in these areas for a while and get people what they need. This equipment will help those efforts a great deal.”

FODAC, Dynarex to Promote DME Partnership at Medtrade Fall Conference

 

Year-long collaboration will expand distribution of vital equipment to disability community

 

TUCKER GA (1 October 2018)Friends of Disabled Adults and Children (FODAC), a non-profit organization providing durable medical equipment (DME) and services to those living with a disability, and Dynarex, a leading medical products provider of disposable and durable medical supplies, are joining forces to help those with disabilities in need of home medical equipment. The two companies are announcing their formal partnership at this year’s Medtrade Fall Expo and Conference, to be held in Atlanta October 15-17, 2018. Dynarex established the charitable program in conjunction with the launch of its Durable Medical Products line at the conference this year. The joint program will include an initial donation from Dynarex of 100 wheelchairs to FODAC and an ongoing commitment to donate a portion of the proceeds from every DME purchase made from the company. FODAC will be responsible for managing the warehousing and distribution of the donated Dynarex products to many groups, including pediatric and veteran initiatives.

 

“Our company has always felt we have more to give to the world than just our products,” said Zalman Tenenbaum, president and CEO, Dynarex Corporation. “When we decided to launch our DME line, we wanted to emphasize how this equipment empowers those with disabilities by enabling them to engage more fully in life. This partnership with FODAC, whose main mission is to help those with disabilities regain their independence and quality of life, syncs well with our core principal of ‘We Care Like Family.’”

 

Dynarex has added a wide range of DME products to its already extensive portfolio of disposable medical supplies and products, including mobility items, rollators, wheel chairs, bathroom safety, beds and rails, mattresses and cushions and patient room accessories. Its new line of DME includes many of the items FODAC supplies at little to no cost to its clients.

 

“We try to match equipment to requests as quickly as possible,” said Chris Brand, president and CEO of FODAC, “but wait times depend largely on our inventory. Now because of this very generous partnership with Dynarex, we will be able to meet the needs of our clients much more quickly, helping them get their lives back on track.”

 

Both Dynarex (booth #1119) and FODAC (booth #2571) are exhibiting at the Medtrade Fall Expo and Conference, scheduled October 15-17 at the Georgia World Conference Center in Atlanta, Georgia. FODAC will be accepting donations of new and gently used DME at the expo; check the Medtrade website for expo hours and schedule.

In August, the Rotary Club of Henry County sponsored its First Annual Electronics and Durable Medical Equipment (DME) Recycling Event to benefit Friends of Disabled Adults and Children (FODAC). The event was held at the First Baptist Church of McDonough, and collected almost $200,000 of gently used DME (like wheelchairs, shower seats, patient lifts, walkers, crutches and rollators) from community donors, including two pediatric power chairs. The club also collected used electronics; FODAC will sell working pieces in its thrift store, and the non-working pieces will go to recyclers. In both cases, funds will benefit FODAC’s mission of providing DME at little to no cost to the recipients.

Seven Months Post-Hurricane, FODAC Finds Puerto Rico Still Lagging in Recovery Efforts, Especially for the Disabled

 

            President and CEO Chris Brand tours island, meets with partners and residents to assess ongoing needs, assist with distribution of medical equipment and supplies

 

Tucker GA – (14 June 2018) –   Seven months after hurricanes Irma and Maria hit Puerto Rico with a devastating double punch, almost one-third of the island’s 1.5 million electricity customers remain without power or appropriate shelter, most of them in rural or remote areas. For those with disabilities or other medical challenges, recovery from the storms has been even more difficult. Chris Brand, president and CEO of Georgia’s Friends of Disabled Adults and Children (FODAC), spent time on the island after the storms to help coordinate distribution of durable medical equipment (DME), like wheelchairs, crutches and other mobility aids, and recently returned there for a week-long tour to view the recovery for himself and help distribute additional DME and other supplies in remote communities.

 

“Seven months after the storms, so much of the island is still in dire need,” said Brand. “Many people are still living from day to day without power, running water, and with little food in homes that are barely habitable. Many people living in rural or remote areas can’t afford gas for their generators, especially problematic when they need to keep oxygen machines operating or vital medicines like insulin refrigerated. I went back to Puerto Rico to see for myself the conditions, and see how we could work with FEMA and local partners to help these residents recover the lives they led before last September.”

 

Brand returned to Puerto Rico in April, arriving first in San Juan, where he made contact with representatives from FEMA Office of Disability Integration and Coordination (ODIC), the Renance of Condado, Programa de Asistencia Tecnológica de Puerto Rico (PRATP), Movimiento para el Alcance de Vida Independiente (MAVI) Puerto Rico, Lift Non-Profit Logistics, and the Rotary Club of San Juan. Brand had first worked with these organizations, along with FEMA representatives, to send equipment. Now he had reunited with his associates to deliver equipment into the most remote and sometimes most dangerous areas of Puerto Rico.

 

Each day of the week-long mission, Brand was up before dawn and returning after midnight. He and his colleagues travelled into the remote villages and settlements, troubled areas before the disaster but now, without basic utilities and no employment, even more desperate with residents fearful of gang violence and crime sprees. Brand and his colleagues were accompanied on their journeys at times by a police escort in order to connect safely with those residents in need. While the Puerto Rican National Guard was still distributing food and water into these areas, HME, donated through private resources like FODAC, was very difficult to be delivered into some areas because of the severe road conditions.

 

“Every day during this trip I met with survivors under the worst conditions yet I was constantly moved by their spirit and faith,” said Brand. “Seeing the areas first-hand and talking to the residents in person helped us understand better how to support our partners in their efforts. We also had the ability to help some of these most desperate patients immediately.”

 

Some of the residents helped by Brand and his group include:

 

  • Jimenez, who is caring for his 97-year-old grandmother as well as his elderly parents. His grandmother is bed-ridden and uses an oxygen tank; his mother relies on insulin. He has spent hundreds of dollars to keep a generator running to power his house and serve his family – and there is still no word when Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA) will restore power to his neighborhood. The delivered wheelchair at least helped his grandmother regain her mobility.

 

  • A woman had an above-the-knee amputation prior to the storm, but without a wheelchair, had been bedridden since her operation. Brand was able to bring her a wheelchair and, and using a patient sling improvised from duct tape, helped her get out of bed for the first time in over nine months.

 

Sadly, Brand and his group reached some residents too late to provide anything but spiritual comfort in their final hours. On their way to meet a family that needed a long-awaited hospital bed, they were met by the woman’s family and asked to join them in prayer by her bedside during her final hours.

 

“These citizens who are suffering are part of America,” continued Brand. “The infrastructure of the island has been destroyed and getting the necessary equipment into the hands of those who need it must be a priority.”

 

Brand believes that it will be years before the Puerto Rican infrastructure will be restored. FEMA has already invested $10 billion in the island’s recovery but he is concerned how much can be accomplished before the June 1 start of the 2018 hurricane season. FODAC has coordinated the delivery of over $175,000 worth of HME to Puerto Rico but the need is still great for manpower and vehicles to distribute it.

 

“Our goal is to build a network here to distribute the equipment, collect more gently used equipment and connect people with resources,” stated Brand. “At this point, we want to strengthen the local organizations by building effective partnerships, to empower the local groups to take up the mission.”
