Alpharetta, GA (May 4, 2019) – On May 4th, local businesses teamed up with newly-opened 6 Bridges Brewing in Johns Creek to sponsor Claws for a Cause – a crawfish and shrimp boil benefiting Senior Services North Fulton. With DataScan stepping up for the second year as presenting sponsor, the event helped raise money for Meals on Wheels and a transportation program that helps get home bound seniors in North Fulton to their medical appointments. “Nutritious food and regular visits to the doctor make a big impact on the health and wellbeing of our senior population”, said Ron Harlow, Executive Director for Senior Services North Fulton. “Our agency and our seniors rely on corporate partnerships, like DataScan, to keep all of our programs and services at no cost to our clients and running without wait lists.”
Headquartered in Alpharetta’s City Center, DataScan provides banks, independent finance companies, and financial institutions flexible tools for managing risk while increasing productivity. DataScan also has a reputation for supporting many local nonprofits and has a team that regularly delivers Meals on Wheels for Senior Services North Fulton.
“Giving back is part of our DNA at DataScan and we are very enthusiastic about this new partnership with Senior Services North Fulton,” said Ed Brown, president, DataScan. “In the past year alone, our associates have spent 62 hours volunteering by delivering food to the home-bound elderly. We are eager to continue supporting this population and being a socially responsible member of the North Fulton community.”
Claws for a Cause was also supported by Aberdeen Place Hospice, Bonnie Sammons, Home Care Assistance, Northside Chapel Funeral Directors, Pegasus Senior Living and Where the Heart Is. The event raised enough money to provide over 1,200 meals to hungry seniors, or almost 90 round-trip rides to medical appointments. “We appreciate these companies for sharing in our vision of a community where ALL older adults are revered, cared for and supported to live meaningful and productive lives”, Harlow concluded.
