And the selected 2nd Quarter 2019 nonprofit is…
This quarter we will be collectively donating to F.E.A.S.T. in memory of long-time member, Doris Gazin. F.E.A.S.T. (Families Empowered And Supporting Treatment for Eating Disorders) is a global community of and for caregivers of loved ones suffering from eating disorders. Their mission is to support caregivers by providing information and mutual support, promoting evidence-based treatment, and advocating for research and education to reduce the suffering associated with eating disorders. Our collective donation will specifically be used to launch a new series of materials for outreach for grandparents, and start a special Doris Gazin Fund for Grandparent Training (specific name to be determined). Doris long believed that F.E.A.S.T. could be doing more to help grandparents understand and support caregiving for families facing these serious but treatable brain disorders. With her stellar example, it will happen.
Our next meeting will be held on August 1, 2019 in The Mosaic Community Space, located at 2985 District Ave., Suite 100 in Merrifield.
