(ATLANTA, GA) – Sharity Ministries, a 501(c)(3) non-profit health care sharing ministry, continues the belief of sharing for the benefit of its united congregation. Sharity uses a portion of funds collected from its membership to distribute to people in need; in December of 2018, Sharity dedicated its charitable giving towards Georgia Canines for Independence (GCI). Like Sharity, GCI is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and is committed to improving people’s quality of life.
Georgia Canines for Independence allows people with conditions such as cerebral palsy, Friedrich’s ataxia, Guillain-Barre syndrome, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, spina bifida, spinal cord injury and stroke to have a life-long trained service dog companion. GCI gives service dogs to individuals who can benefit from a K9 companion at no cost; insurance does not offer financial assistance to those that need a service dog, and this organization fills a necessary gap in our society. These trained furry partners boost social interactions, self-esteem and increase independence. As a result of GCI’s commitment to those in need, many owners are now able to attend school and hold employment.
William Thead, CEO of Sharity Ministries, states, “Enrich the lives of our community, and all will be blessed. Change a life and fulfill the work of God.” Sharity aims to honor Christ by serving others. In Philippians 2:3, God commands, “Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind let each of you regard one another as more important than himself.”
