CarMax Cares

Throughout the month of June, a total of 37 CarMax employees volunteered with MOWA. During their time in our kitchen, CarMax filled 1,250 trays of food, bagged 1,000 dinner rolls, and packed 650 meals to be delivered to homebound seniors.

In our Adult Day Health Center and Northside Senior Center, CarMax participated in baseball, Uno, trivia, dancing and bingo with 58 seniors. They also served breakfast and lunch to those seniors. We are so grateful for the time they dedicated to us in the month of June.

 

ABOUT US

With 100 Baby Boomers turning 65 every day, Atlanta’s senior population is rapidly expanding and is expected to increase 65.8% by 2030. Additionally, Fulton County has the highest percentage of seniors living in poverty (12%), living alone (nearly 50%), and having difficulty leaving the home (25%) when compared to the rest of the region (Atlanta Regional Commission, 2012).

OUR PROGRAMS

Meal Services: Our flagship program includes home-delivered meals, congregate meals, and emergency pantry bags.

Home Repair Services: We provide free and low-cost home repairs so that seniors can stay in their own homes and communities as they age.

Adult Day Health Center: Our Adult Day Health Center provides specialized care for seniors with Alzheimer’s or dementia. Our Center is a medical model and licensed by the State of Georgia.

Neighborhood Senior Centers: We manage six Fulton County Neighborhood Senior Centers, providing a place of community, support, wellness and activity for seniors age 60 or older.

Thank you CarMax!
