The Medford Team is beyond grateful to be a part of our local Tarrant County community. We’re always happy to provide assistance and support to those around us when we can. Recently, one of our clients from Southlake reached out to us for help rebuilding their child’s Elementary School “treehouse.” This treehouse consists of two large, circular decks with benches built around the base of two separate oak trees on the Carroll Elementary School grounds. It has been a cherished part of the school for over 18 years, as it has been used for outdoor education days, teddy bear picnics, and as a welcomed treat to both teachers and students, whenever they were able to enjoy the outdoors on a sunny day.

Once a month, we like to post a blog about an upcoming charity event benefitting local Tarrant County. Coming up in January, there is a great opportunity to help those battling pediatric cancer:
The 501 (3)(c) non-profit organization, Christ’s Angels Leaving Everlasting Blessings, Inc. (CALEB) of North Texas has devoted its energy to passionately advocating for local pediatric cancer patients and their families.
CALEB’s mission is to serve, inspire, and empower individuals and families who are affected by pediatric cancer. Their goal is to let each survivor know that they are not fighting alone, that CALEB, Inc. is there with them from diagnosis and beyond!
This great organization is hosting a remarkable fashion show, showcasing pediatric cancer patients, survivors and siblings of those who lost their battle. During this heartwarming event, love and encouragement are poured into these young, brave warriors.
Journey 2 Healing Hearts (J2HH) is a non-profit organization that was formed out of grief after two local Arlington, Texas mothers lost their sons to gun violence. Their focus is on helping families and individuals heal after tragic losses due to gun violence, and also to support and educate the community for the cause of gun violence prevention.
J2HH will be hosting their 2nd Annual NO MORE GUN VIOLENCE Run on April 16, 2016, at Cravens Park in Arlington, TX. The event is open to adults and children of all ages as well as individuals whom would like to support and not take part in actual event.
