Mo Anderson’s Birthday in recognition of her leadership in guiding the culture of our company. Mo is the Vice Chairman of the Board for Keller Williams Realty International.
RED Day (Renew,Energize and Donate) is an initiative-dedicated to celebrating Keller Williams Realty’s yearround commitment to improving our local communities. Each year, on the second Thursday of 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.
RED Day initiatives run the gamut: from rebuilding homes, refurbishing local parks, giving to local food shelters, hosting blood drives, beautifying beaches and somuch more. Projects are chosen by each individual market center based on a need they see within its community.
This event is an entrenched part of Keller Williams-Realty’s culture and displays the extraordinary effect a company can have when individuals come together to work as a team for the greater good of everyone.
“RED Day isn’t about cleaning up a park. It is a one-day expression of what happens 24/7 in the Keller Williams culture. It’s seeing a need, discovering who can meet that need and then getting it done.”
Keller Williams Marco Island is proud to have participated in several projects locally over the last few years. This year’s event fell under Chairperson Mary Schouw, who is thisyear’s events Chairperson. Mary noted, “In 2010, we helped Habitat for Humanity at their newly built development in East Naples. We laid sod, planted trees, painted, etc. In 2011, we worked at Mackle Park painting the main building exterior while at the same time, we had another crew at South beach doing cleanup. This year we served the Marco Island Charter Middle School with a landscape project that is not covered by their landscape vendor. We cut down trees and cleared the brush from an exterior fence around the property. Each year we evaluate what we can do for our community and always strive to spread our volunteer work so any local organization has a chance to benefit from our work.”
