Annual KW ‘RED Day’ Set for May 14

WHITE PLAINS— Keller Williams associates will be taking the day off on Thursday, May 14, 2015, but it will hardly be a day of rest. Associates have chosen to “Give Where They Live” as part of RED Day, the company’s annual day of service, dedicated to renewing, energizing, and donating to their local communities.
As part of the RED Day effort, Keller Williams NY Realty, working with Friends of Westchester County Parks, have chosen to clean up and remove vines on the Bronx River Parkway in an effort to beautify the natural vegetation and growth at the location near the Kensico Dam. The work will commence at 10 a.m. and end around 1 p.m., followed by a picnic lunch.
“RED Day is built on the belief that people can and should come together to achieve extraordinary things to help others,” said Team Leader Justine Aiello. “In years past, we bought and packed up supplies for the United for the Troops’ organization, and entertained and served lunch to the White Plains Senior Center. 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.”
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. It is one of the largest events in the real estate industry.
