Keller Williams Realty may sell houses, but they believe that one day of giving their time can start to change communities.
Across the country, Keller Williams closed their offices and focused their efforts on fixing broken equipment for kids, picking up trash, weeding and so much more.
“What we are actually doing is that all of Keller Williams together, nationally and internationally, got together on one day to give back to our community.” said Keller Williams Agent Shelby Diehl. “Obviously more than one day we like to give back, but our whole office shuts down and we all come out. It’s all about renewing, energizing and donating back to our community.”
Owner of Hagerstown’s Keller Williams Mary Llewellyn believes their business can impact Hagerstown far beyond selling houses.
“It’s just a great feeling when we’ve worked, given back to the community and made everything beautiful, it’s just a great feeling to be able to give the day back” said Llewellyn. “It’s like we’re family, we all come together to just help and give.”
“RED Day” stands for renew, energize and donate, and Agent Diehl said she loves to see the town come together as a true community.
“What we want to see here is a recognition that we are a community and we all work together to give back.” said Diehl. “The city of Hagerstown is a staple but it’s just a small part of so much more than what’s going on out there, so we want to shed some light on the community and show how cool it is to see us come together as one piece.”
Keller Williams also partnered up with Alex’s Lemonade, and any proceeds or donations given went towards Pediatric Cancer Research.
