From Keller Williams Midtown Direct Realty:
Keller Williams associates may be taking the day off on Thursday, May 12, 2016, but it will hardly be a day of rest. Associates with the Keller Williams Midtown Direct Realty office 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 Midtown Direct Realty has chosen to spend the day at the Kings Super Market in Maplewood and the Ashley Marketplace in South Orange Village from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., collecting food for the local Food Pantry at Our Lady of Sorrows.
The food items that are the most needed to stock the pantry are pasta, past sauce, tuna (in water), soups, canned vegetables, canned fruit, rice, beans, peanut butter, low-sugar cereals and powdered milk.
“RED Day is built on the belief that people can and should come together to achieve extraordinary things, in order to help others,” said Team Leader Tom Peters. “Prevously, we helped paint the parlor of the Woodland, as a service to Maplewood township. We can’t tell you what an impact it made on each of us personally. We are committed to consistent Food Drives for our RED DAY, as that need is never fully met. We all know that filling all the gaps in our communities can’t 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. We are excited to fill the food pantry this year at Our Lady of Sorrows.”
Since the first RED Day in 2009, Keller Williams associates have given hundreds of thousands of hours of community service through activities ranging from food and blood drives to rebuilding homes and schools for community members in need. To this day, it is one of the largest events in the real estate industry.
