Ronkonkoma, NY – Flora Parekh is the Founder and President of Gift of Life USA, a 501 (C) (3) non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the specially-abled (the physically and mentally challenged) in the areas of health, education and social awareness.
With the mission to generate efficient resources to support the specially-abled through advocacy and education, the organization conducts various programs and activities in benefit of the differentlyabled community, namely “Save a Child” Support, We are Special” Talent & Skill Recognition, “Health & Education”, “Awareness” and many more. Along with their annual programs, this year's Gala focuses on higher education scholarship support for autistic/special needs.
Through fundraising, advocacy, education and generating effective resources, Gift of Life USA’s vision is for their beneficiaries to be self-reliant individuals with growing acceptance within their community, and among their friends and families.
Rather than reach out to the organizations and generating funds for them, Gift of Life USA reaches out to individual families and brings everyone together. In fact, their beneficiaries are present and perform at their Annual Gala. The annual Gala showcases exceptional inspiring talent of special needs individuals - performers, speakers, entrepreneurs.
Flora says she uses the word special because none of us are perfect. Just like anyone, if you don't ask for help, you don't get it. There are so many resources available for all of us to continue exploring.
