Dealing with the COVID19 pandemic
Following government recommendations, the FODAC offices are currently closed to the public, to keep staff, volunteers and clients safe. But we have continued to work behind the scenes, providing valuable support to many agencies as they deal with the dangerous spread of coronavirus.
FODAC delivers critical supplies to Grady Healthcare
On Tuesday, March 24, FODAC provided 3,000 N95 masks,and hundreds of other supplies to Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta to protect healthcare workers. Chris Brand, president and CEO (pictured left) personally delivered the items to Grady’s Executive Director of Emergency and Trauma Services Laura Hochwalt and Dr. Omar Danner , chief of service at the Morehouse School of Medicine Department of Surgery at Grady. FODAC's delivery was greeted by applause from hospital staff.

Working with local and state partners
As a member of both NVOAD (National Association of Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster) and GAVOAD (the Georgia arm of the association), FODAC is helping to meet the urgent healthcare needs of healthcare facilities across the nation. Our staff is assessing and prepping medical inventory that might be needed in the coming days. We are also serving as a warehouse distribution site for partners, companies and organizations that are donating critical supplies. 
Helping quarantined travelers
In early March, infected passengers from the cruise ship Grand Princess were evacuated from California to Georgia, where they were housed under quarantine at Dobbins Air Force Base. Working with GEMA and FEMA, FODAC provided durable medical equipment (DME), such as wheelchairs and shower benches, to these passengers while they were in the fourteen-day isolation.
