Keller Williams associates 'Give Where They Live' May 9
Keller Williams associates may be taking the day off Thursday, May 9, 2013, but it will hardly be a day of rest. Associates with the Keller Williams Realty Waynesville office have chosen to “Give Where They Live” as part of RED Day, one of the biggest events in the real estate industry.
Short for “Renew, Energize and Donate,” RED Day was created to unite Keller Williams Realty offices and associates in an international day of service.
As part of the RED Day effort, Keller Williams Realty Waynesville has chosen to spend the day collecting much needed school supplies to be distributed to the nine elementary schools in Haywood County.
“This event is an entrenched part of Keller Williams Realty’s culture and displays the extraordinary effect a company can have when individuals come together to work as a team for the greater good of everyone,” said culture committee chairperson, Billy Brede. “In previous years Keller Williams Agents have rehabilitated homes for local seniors, helped with building a home for Habitat for Humanity, served food at the Open Door, and raised food and charitable contributions for the Manna Food Bank Summer Sack Program for Haywood County School children. We can’t tell you what an impact it made on each of us personally — it felt so great to give back to the community we know and love.”
Since the first RED Day in 2009, Keller Williams associates have given almost a half million hours of community service through activities ranging from food and blood drives to cleaning up trash in public parks, revamping gardens at nursing homes and rebuilding homes and schools for community members in need. To this day, it is one of the largest events in the real estate industry.
