This is the third year the agents of the local Keller Williams office have participated in a huge national Red Day event with a purely local twist. All around the country, the offices of Keller Williams close for the day so their agents, customers, family and friends can spend time giving back to their communities. Red Day was started by a group of Keller Williams agents. They wanted to present a huge birthday gift to someone they considered “A woman of culture.” That woman was Mo Anderson, CEO of Keller Williams International.
The local crew lived up to the event’s motto, Give Where You Live. The agents took on two local efforts; one team painted the outside of the building at Mackle Park and the other group worked a beach clean-up effort pulling in all sorts of trash.
Parks and Rec Director, Bryan Milk, was all smiles, saying “It is truly amazing what a group of people can accomplish when they put their mind to it and all work together!”
The local effort was spearheaded by Lisa Gandy, Chris Everson and Donna Cottrell, part of the KW Cares committee. “Red” stands for Renew-Energize-Donate. A number of friends of Keller Williams donated to the effort: Florida Paint supplied the paint, JW Fishell supplied the airless paint sprayer and the Parks and Rec Departments supplied all the painting materials, such as brushes, rollers, pans. For the beach clean-up, Publix assisted with trash bags and gloves.
