KELLER WILLIAMS RED DAY - COMING SOON TO A TOWN NEAR YOU!
Following is the press release that was submitted to the local press today regarding our RED Day Project. Our team is so excited to be participating in this project! But, what makes it really special is that our office hasn't officially opened yet. Today, we received our unconditional approval from Keller Williams International Realty to open our local Punta Gorda franchise. While we'll be getting that office up and running with great haste, we will still pause and take a day out on Thursday to "GIVE WHERE WE LIVE"! This project with the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition will have an impact on many lives and we are all just so excited and honored to be a part of it!
Keller Williams Realty Inaugurates "RED Day"
Peace River Partners to participate in company's international day of giving!
<Port Charlotte, FL>-<5-11-10>- With corporate bailouts and stratospheric executive compensation dominating the headlines, it's helpful to be reminded of companies that remain focused on giving back to their communities.
Committed to setting a new standard in business citizenship, on May 13, Keller Williams Realty Peace River Partners, Market Center team will devote the day to help the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition for RED Day. RED Day, short for "Renew, Energize and Donate," was created by Keller Williams Realty Inc. to give back to its communities across the United States and Canada. With 73,000 associates in 690 offices participating in various volunteer efforts all on the same day, the company will unite its regional offices to make an international impact.
"When we heard that this would be a collective effort making us 73,000 strong - it was so exciting to think of the impact that we all will make in one day," said Team Leader, Lynn Doty. "Given the economic climate, many non-essential, but important projects are being put on hold. We see this as an opportunity to give back to the community by focusing our efforts on projects that many not have otherwise been completed."
Each Keller Williams Realty office has picked a one day civic project with the goal of showing that one day can make a difference to a community. Locally, Peace River Partners has chosen to volunteer with the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition and will be at their Safe House Emergency Homeless Shelter and at 2 of their transitional homes. We will be painting, cleaning, doing maintenance and yard work at the transitional homes which are currently vacant and getting them ready for families with 3-4 children to occupy. Then at the Emergency Shelter we are completing their "honey do list" along with providing a BBQ dinner to more than 130 people.
"We are so grateful to Keller-Williams for what they're doing for the Homeless Coalition. Through their efforts we will be able to make a more homelike environment for our residents and the community we serve. We truly cannot thank them enough for the gift that they are giving us on Red Day." John Fanning, Shelter Director.
