Charity of the Month: Alzheimer’s Association

By Sklar Furnishings

Giving Back

February 4, 2017

2017 is Sklar’s 15th anniversary, and we’re celebrating by giving back to the community that has given us so much. For every month of the year, our team has chosen one local charity that we’ll be supporting through donations, fundraising, and boosting awareness of their great work. These organizations create opportunities, lend a hand to people in hardship, and help make Boca Raton an even better place to live.

Alzheimer’s Association

For the month of February, Sklar is proudly supporting Alzheimer’s Association. Founded in 1980, Alzheimer’s Association has grown into a non-profit with global reach. The Association offers a wealth of information, advice and coping tools for patients and their families.

Alzheimer’s Disease affects 6% of people over 65, or an estimated 5 million people across the USA. Patients become increasingly dependant on caregivers as the disease progresses, meaning that their families are severely impacted, too. As the life expectancy of the average American increases, so unfortunately does the prevalence of age-related diseases like Alzheimer’s, which is why is it so important to support organizations that are working to beat them.

Alzheimer’s Association’s mission is threefold; to support the search for a cure for Alzheimer’s, to provide care for those already affected, and to help prevent dementia by promoting brain health. Learn more about the vital work of Alzheimer’s Association and support their fundraising efforts at www.alz.org.
