COVINGTON, Ga. – Giving back to the community they’ve helped so many people call home, REMAX Agents Realty is dedicating the 2019 calendar year to the Year of Giving Back. 

“We are partnering with different organizations each month in 2019,” Mandy Young, of REMAX, said. “Our national charity partner is Children’s Miracle Network, so we started with them in January. We did a food drive.”

Young said the partner organizations have been scheduled out for the entire year, with April acting as a towel and wash cloth drive for the Garden of Gethsemane Homeless Shelter. Other agencies include Covington Police Who Care, Newton County Christian Learning Center and Make a Wish Georgia. Anyone wishing to donate items to the cause can do so by dropping them off at the REMAX office, located on Elm Street across from Mayfield ACE Hardware.
