The 13th LIVE LOVE EVENT was another fantastic event. Over 65 participants gathered together to live love at the Furniture Bank of Metro Atlanta. For 7 participants, this was the first time in their lives they volunteered anywhere. Together we…
- Built 12 kitchen and end tables
- Painted 4 tables
- Delivered furniture to 6 homes of people moving out of homelessness, fleeing domestic violence or living with HIV/AIDS.
- Unloaded two trucks of deliveries into the Furniture Bank
- Painted the lobby and conference room of the Furniture Bank
- And much more
According to our completed post event surveys, 30% of attendees experienced a measurable positive shift in their attitude towards serving others. This data is exciting to us because it indicates we are making a cultural influence with our work.
One person who’s attitude towards serving others went from “Very Good” to “Excellent” said…“Alone, I feel that my impact is so small, but joining many others allows me to see the magnitude of coming together around a single purpose.” Another person said… “Seeing everyone work together, children, parents, teens, old, young, – as it should be. Today was ‘the village’.”
