Founded by Doris Phillips in 2004, The Circle of Love Foundation’s mission is to garner support and awareness of, and to provide hope to those who need it most: children in need in the Birmingham area.
Through its members’ and many volunteers’ tireless work, and unparalleled passion for giving back to the future’s next great leaders, The Circle of Love has touched the lives of more than 5,500 children who would have otherwise gone without gifts on Christmas morning, or the most basic school supplies, like pencils and paper, on the first day of school.
Since 2004 the organization and its parent company, RealSource Real Estate Support Services, has facilitated the raising of more than $825,000 in gifts and supplies.
Today, more than 50 businesses sponsor Circle of Love toy and school drive boxes, bringing in hundreds of gifts and supplies each year for the children living in the five shelters with whom the organization partners.
Above all else, The Circle of Love strives to let Birmingham’s children in need know they have not been forgotten, they are not faceless, and they are not without support or care.
