Reviews for Thanks Mom & Dad Fund Inc
awesome charity filling gaps and helping older adults
This is a very special way to honor parents and thank them for the many years of caring and raising us not only through the years as children, but also throughout adulthood. Dad married my very young widowed Mom many years ago and adopted my brother and I when we were very young. He has always been my true Father. Both of my parents made growing up a special memory for all of us kids. Everything was done for family and they are both my true hero's and have greatly influenced how I raised my own son. Mom was a stay at home Mom, and made every holiday very special, especially Christmas. After Dad sadly passed away 4 years ago, I moved Mom in to live with us for care as she has Alzheimer's. She is now in a care home on hospice in the final stages of the disease. Even though I lost my "true" Mom many years ago, I continue on this journey with her and fill every visit with joy. After all, that is what she taught us "kids" growing up. Thanks Mom and Dad!
This organization has had a tremendous impact on the elderly population, especially in recent years with changes in healthcare and other government programs. I also know at least 2 members of the organization and can vouch for their talents, commitments and dedication.
The Thanks Mom & Dad Fund is unique in that it allows donations to be made in honor of family members or mentors. The funds distributed by the Board provide support to older Americans through non-profit organizations in the Atlanta Metro Area with the strongest need. It is a great idea from a group that does great work!
Thanks Mom and Dad is my favorite charity. All funds are directed to the elderly in support of those services needed at a crucial time in the life cycle. The organization honors the elderly through a myriad of essential serves. Thank you Mom and Dad staff for providing these services in a professional and caring manner
Thanks Mom and Dad is a necessity in this day and age when so many need so much. It is wonderful to know that when funding is being lost , cut etc. someone still cares enough to fight for and provide for the elderly. People who worked hard all their lives and now in their golden years their reward is poverty. We need to take care of our own and "Thanks Mom and Dad" does just that.
The Thanks Mom and Dad fund is a great way to honor someone who has supported and encouraged you in your life. At the same time it allows those funded agencies to serve those who need supportive services in order to remain as independent as possible. It is a fund that is making a difference in an innovative, caring and fun way!
This is a timely and necessary charity given our growing population of the elderly. In addition,the work that this charity does focuses on real needs based endeavors in local communities and and delivers a clear, simple message wrapped up in a bow that's symbolized in their logo and their name- which says it all- thanks Mom & Dad! This charity does all the hard work our parents did for us in an effort to make sure that no aging parent or grandparent or great grandparent is ever left to want or need. Thank YOU to the Thanks Mom & Dad Fund!
Thanks Mom & Dad Fund helps many local providers of aging services to address the needs of older adults. I appreciate making a donation in thanksgiving for or remembrance of a loved one. I know that my donation will stay in the local area to support services for older adults such as senior centers, meals on wheels and others. I believe in the organization and recommend it often to friends and colleagues both for making donations and applying for a grant for a worthwhile project.
This is a truly great cause as it addresses the oft forgotten population of aging parents and grandparents. Often it's far to easy to forget or neglect those who got all of us to wherever we are today. It is great work they do.
