Annual REAL Hope Campaign


2017 MedShare International Giveback

Living R.E.A.L.'s 2017 REAL Hope Campaign with MedShare set the bar for service and hands-on giveback for our organization! On Saturday 6/10, Living REAL spent time with other volunteers at the Decatur distribution headquarters for MedShare.  Together we worked to package medical supplies and equipment for under-served communities abroad.  Once assigned the duty of assembling and providing boxes for the materials, our team set about doing so at a speed and level of efficiency that couldn't be matched!   At the end of the packing shift, our volunteers truly felt that it was time well spent with an even more visible impact!  Check out our images below and look out for more volunteer opportunities with Team Living REAL in the future!

2017 Adopt-a-Mommy Giveback

The beginning of spring 2017 brought not only sun and blooms, but a chance to work again with Families First Atlanta in an effort to help expectant moms with obtaining a few important but sometimes expensive necessities needed with the arrival of a new baby.  The first weekend in April, Team Living REAL was able to purchase some items with some of our funds raised from our other events for  a few moms-in-need chosen for us by Families First.  Look below to see some of the items we were able to provide to the moms to welcome their new bundle of joy!
