RED Day lends a hand
Submitted By Steve Tutt
Keller WilliamsÕ associates took the day off on May 8, but it was hardly for a day of rest. Associates chose to ÒGive Where They LiveÓ as part of RED Day, the companyÕs annual day of service, dedicated to Renewing, Energizing, and Donating to their local communities.
As part of the RED Day effort, Keller Williams Benchmark Properties and KW Commercial East Bay spent the day with Abode Services at Sunrise Village Emergency Shelter. The Keller Williams Team volunteered at Sunrise Village last year and completed a special painting project in the family rooms and patio areas. Sunrise Village Emergency Shelter in Fremont, where the Keller Williams team volunteered, offers shelter, meals and services to up to 66 adults and children experiencing homelessness at a time.
ÒRED Day is built on the belief that people can and should come together to achieve extraordinary things to help others,Ó said Team Leader Gina Hanson. ÒWe all know that filling all the gaps in our communities canÕt be accomplished by serving just once a year. RED Day just happens to be the one-day expression of the constant state of the Keller Williams culture. We see a need, discover who can meet it and get it done.Ó
