JERSEY CITY, N.J., Dec. 2, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- With Alzheimer's Awareness Month coming to an end this past Tuesday, Magnets.com recognized today the contributions of Children of Aging Parents (CAPS), 501(c) organization, with a charitable donation of $1.00 for each order placed in November.

Established in 1977, Pennsylvania based CAPS is a non-profit organization whose mission is to assist the nation's nearly 54 million caregivers of the elderly or chronically ill with reliable information, referrals, and support.  Additionally, CAPS aims to heighten public awareness that the health of family caregivers is essential to ensure quality care of the nation's growing elderly population.

"Caregivers have made significant contributions to the lives of our immediate family, as well as Magnets.com employees and their loved ones," said Erwin Metius, president of Magnets.com.  "To help continue their selfless giving to the elderly, including those suffering from Alzheimer's disease, we're proud to be able to support and further CAPS' strategic initiatives."

With over 23% of all US households containing a caregiver, the charitable donation will certainly go a long way in helping CAPS, which averages approximately 5,000 annual requests for assistance - a figure that continues to grow.  "We rely exclusively on donations, like the one from Magnets.com, to meet the needs of caregivers and those they care for," said Lenore Sherman, executive director of CAPS' parent non-profit organization Contact Greater Philadelphia.  "We absolutely appreciate their generous contribution and absolutely encourage others to follow suit."

"We're a family owned and operated company that takes an active role in our community and organizations that truly make a positive impact.  CAPS should certainly be applauded for their tireless role in contributing to the lives of those who depend on them, and the entire Magnets.com team - and our customers - are glad to be able to make a difference," concluded Mr. Metius.
