The Doris Marie Jones Foundation was founded by Gina Scott after caring for her mother with Alzheimers. The Foundation’s Mission Statement is “To assist Alzheimer’s Caregivers by providing Educational Awareness, Health and Fitness Initiatives and Supportive Service activities, enhancing the quality of life for individuals impacted along the Gulf Coast Area.”
The Foundation will be presenting a Rocking for Alzheimer’s Caregivers Summit and Shop Til You Drop Shopping Spree on October 5, 2019 at The Grounds in Mobile, Alabama. For more information visit www.dorismariejonesfoundation.org or call 251-533-6092.
Unfortunately, I will not be able to have a booth at this event. I wanted to support this fantastic cause, though. Caregivers are truly angels. Caring for someone else requires a lot of time, energy, love, and patience. Sometimes a Caregiver needs a little boost or support. I’m incredibly happy that these specific Caregivers have that boost and support at their finger tips.
The color purple is associated with Alzheimer’s awareness. I donated a 10×10 purple Broken But Beautiful clock to be used as a door prize at the event. I hope whoever receives the clock is empowered by it no matter what they may be going through in their own life. I also hope for a large turn out at the event and that the Foundation and Caregivers receive the funds they need to continue on with their mission.
