May 10th marked another RED Day success, see 2011′s, and the third RED Day I’ve participated in since joining Keller Williams Realty in 2010. This year, Keller Williams Realty Marysville’s associates ventured out to Comford Park and the Arlington’s Cocoon House to lend man/women power with yard work and cleaning.
I went to Comford Park and went to town weeding, planting, carrying stuff, dumping lawn compost and generally cracking jokes and having fun with colleagues. It was quite fun and one of the themes that arose was “why don’t other offices volunteer in the community?”. I don’t have an answer to that question though I know how it made me feel participating in RED Day – really good.
What is RED Day
RED Day (Renew, Energize and Donate) is an initiative dedicated to celebrating Keller Williams Realty’s year-round commitment to improving our local communities. Each year, on the second Thursday in May, tens of thousands of associates from across the United States and Canada participate in a wide range of projects, devoting their time to renewing and energizing aspects of the neighborhoods in which they serve.
Being a real estate broker, I’m fortunate to see the many views of our community so taking time out of the day to participate and improve the community give me great joy. Below are pictures I took, not very good, and I’ll post links to other blogs and news articles as they come online.
