R.E.A.L. THANKS Campaign
The holidays often represent a time when those in need feel the need the hardest. Living REAL emphatically gives thanks for our burgeioning impact and move to show our gratitude by continuing to serve and help our neighbors in need.
The Real THANKS Campaign provides our organization with the opportunity to give a little hope and make the holidays a little brighter for local communities in need. 2016 marked the start of the Living REAL partnership with Families First, Georgia's largest family and children's services organization in metro Atlanta. This partnership was began in an effort to reach families in need within the metro Atlanta area.
Thus far, we've participated in a Holiday Dinner Drive and spearheaded our Adopt-a-Family initiative (both through the Families First collaboration).
HOLIDAY DINNER DRIVE
Each year, Living REAL provides a way for our donors to give and provide all of the necessities for a holiday dinner, alleviating the possibility of having an empty refrigerator over the holidays. . Though donations are put to use during both the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, our Holiday Dinner Drive is available for donation at any time! Please feel free to donate using the button above any any time during the year! Deadlines and details for each seasonal drive will be available closer to the holiday of note. towards the supply of Families First, presented directly to the families for use.
Our Adopt-a-Family Initiative involves the adoption of families that provided Families First, Inc with a list of a few winter necessities that would provide relief from the weather and help Christmas be a little better for their families. As a partner with Families First, Team Living Real supplies the needs of the chosen families by using donated funds to purchase items off of the list provided by the family/families and working to provide a little hope for the families in need. Necessities provided often include scarves, gloves, toiletries, socks, winter coats, and whatever else is needed.
Seeing the impact our organization has been able to make with what some could consider a small donation, continues to motivate us to make an even bigger impact with each year that we grow this campaign. We welcome your donations and participation this holiday season and in the years to come!
