Everyone here at Keller Williams Realty is looking forward to our biggest day of the year to “Give Where We Live!” We’ll get together for a day of fun helping three different groups in the Allentown area. Here in the Lehigh Valley, The Turning Point, the 6th Street Shelter, and The Program for Women and Families are anxiously awaiting our help.

Red Day (Renew, Energize, and Donate) is a Keller Williams service initiative that was established to allow Keller Williams real estate agents to give back by improving their local communities. Activities include fixing up older homes, providing food for the homeless, or any other service related activity. This year’s Red Day is Thursday, May 9, 2013.

“A busy as our lives are, it is important to turn off the phone, step away from the office and give back to the community that supports our agents and offices. We feel so fortunate to have associates that don’t see this as a dollar lost in a day off from work, but much more gained in the community.” ~ Mark Willis, CEO of Keller Williams Realty, Inc.

In order to make this event as successful as possible, Keller Williams asks for your help with donations. You may be a homeowner, a volunteer, or someone who is eager to help! However you choose to get involved, every little bit counts.
