AUSTIN, TEXAS (May 12, 2011)—Keller Williams Realty agents across North America will be building their communities in a different way on May 12–by participating in the company’s 3rd annual RED Day. As part of the annual RED Day, Keller Williams associates have given more than 275,000 hours of community service work volunteering in the past two years.
“As a company, this is a day we say…put down your phone and pick up a paint brush! Our communities are what make our jobs so rewarding and so unique-and we look forward to giving back on this day especially each year,” said Mark Willis, CEO of Keller Williams Realty, Inc. “We have enjoyed hearing the countless stories about the impact our associates make on their local neighborhoods and look forward to hearing even more this year!”
On the company’s Facebook page, many Keller Williams offices have shared their plans for RED Day including: in Anchorage, the Keller Williams Realty Alaska Group is partnering with Habitat for Humanity to build a home; in Aurora, Colorado, the Keller Williams Realty Park Meadows Market Center will be repairing and cleaning up their local Ronald McDonald House; and many offices including those in Fayetteville, Arkansas, and Gig Harbor, Washington, plan to hold food drives and blood drives.
“RED Day is successful and continuing to grow because of our associates’ passion and love for their communities,” added Mary Tennant, president and COO of Keller Williams Realty, Inc. “They have embraced the opportunity to give back in such an inspiring way–we feel so fortunate to be in business with such an amazing group of people.”
