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 14, Keller Williams Realty Services (Mandeville and Hammond) Team devoted the day to helping the Covington Food Bank and the Tangipahoa Food Bank 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 have made in one day,” said Team Leader, Craig Martin “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 communities that have supported us for 17 years by focusing our efforts on projects that we could truly make a real impact and difference.”
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, the Hammond and Mandeville Offices volunteered with the Covington Food Bank and the Tangipahoa Food Bank. The Covington Food Bank said, “We truly appreciate what you have done. We could not do this without help.” The Hammond Food Bank said, “It would have taken us months to do what you have done in an afternoon, thank you so much!!!
