2023 Operation Give Back Recap

Laura Jewett December 31, 2023

The Inspired Living Real Estate Collective is committed to giving back in our backyard! Our strategic philanthropic program called Operation Give Back focuses on four core areas: Children, Health, Homelessness, and Animals.
A portion of every commission we earn is contributed to one of these local charities on behalf of our clients. We also hosted four contribution drives throughout 2023 to collect essential items for these amazing organizations. It is with YOUR help that 2023 has been our most impactful year to our charity partners with countless items cleared off wish lists and a collective $4,154 donated! We had the pleasure of presenting all of the holiday donations and checks to our charity partners this week.
Thank You Thank You Thank You for continuing to help us fulfill our mission!

The Joy Bus: 2023 Donations $1066

The Joy Bus is a nonprofit organization whose sole purpose is to relieve the daily struggles of people with cancer by delivering a fresh and healthy meal with a friendly face. Their mission is to improve the lives of their patrons through good food and company. Founded in 2011 by award-winning chef, Jennifer Caraway, The Joy Bus was named in honor of her dear friend Joy. Joy struggled with the painful and debilitating side effects of ovarian cancer to which she ultimately succumbed. Her grace, drive, and determination inspire them to help those who fight that same battle. Many cancer patients are left to fend for themselves during this turning point in their lives. The Joy Bus eases that burden by providing healthy meals specific to their patrons’ needs, delivered by volunteers who are often cancer survivors themselves.
"This means the world to us. Our volunteers and everyone who helps us in the community allow us to continue our program. Right now we serve 600 meals a month and we want to expand to 2,000 meals a month. Your contributions allow us to grow to provide and reach more members of our community."

The Foster Alliance: 2023 Donations $916

The mission of The Foster Alliance, formerly known as Arizona Helping Hands, is to provide essential needs for children in foster care through their safety, permanency and health programs. The vision of The Foster Alliance is that every child in foster care is safe and loved.
"We would not be able to do what we do without our volunteers and our community. The way the community rallies around children in foster care is truly incredible! All of the donations are going to make sure each kid feels loved and celebrated during the holidays and their birthdays."

Maggie’s Place: 2023 Donations $956

Maggie’s Place uses a Trauma Informed Care Approach to provide foundational building blocks for development, learning, and health throughout a person’s lifetime. They provide safe and secure housing for pregnant women and their infants, direct support services, parenting and child enrichment, health and wellness, and educational programming.
"We are so grateful for donations, especially in-kind donations where our moms get to "shop" the donation closet where they can "purchase" products such as diapers, wipes, clothes, etc. The moms earn donation dollars by participating in programming, counseling, and classes we have at the family success center."

AZ Pet Project: 2023 Donations $1,216

The Arizona Pet Project recognizes that many pet owners in our community face unexpected circumstances leading to the heart-breaking need to surrender their pets. The Arizona Pet Project keeps pets with the people who love and need them most by connecting our vulnerable community members and families in crisis with services and resources to prevent the unnecessary surrender of their beloved companions. We support families while also reducing the number of dogs and cats in our Valley shelters.
"It is really hard to state what these donations mean to our community. Monetary donations allow us to provide the essential needs to keep pets with their families. Every bit helps!"
