Return guest and rare Atlanta native, Chris Brand has been involved in helping disabled adults and seniors for as long as he can remember.  Chris is the President and CEO of Friends of Disabled Adults and Children (FODAC).  FODAC was founded in 1986 to assist families of disabled adults and children in accessing both equipment and services to facilitate accessibility and independence.  FODAC fills 3,600 requests, distributing over 5,000 items each year from its 65,000 square foot facility in Stone Mountain.  The retail value of all medical equipment that has been given away now totals over $60 million!

Though we have previously enjoyed Chris as a guest on our show, he has several new and exciting developments to discuss:

  • FODAC Golf Classic at Stone Mountain Golf Club on October 15, 2012 - 10 am shotgun start.  There is still time to register a team to play, or to be a sponsor!
  • New Equipment Drop-off sites:
    • Project Walk in Alpharetta
    • Mobility Express on Holcomb Bridge Road in Roswell
  • Veterans Administration Equipment cause - new agreement for VA to donate all used wheel chairs to FODAC
  • Do you know someone who would make a good Fund Development Director?  FODAC is hiring!

To register for the golf tournament,  find out more about FODAC, or learn about volunteer opportunities, call them at (770) 491-9014, or visit their website at  And don't forget their Thrift Store, located at 4900 Lewis Road in Stone Mountain.
