RED Day

KWMET Cares

3rd Annual “RED Day” Lends a Hand

KW Metropolitan and Ryan Middle School join together as part of community service initiative in the US and Canada.

Short for “Renew, Energize and Donate,” RED Day was created to unite Keller Williams Realty offices and associates in an international day of service. Since RED Day began in 2009, Keller Williams associates participated in activities ranging from food and blood drives to cleaning up trash in public parks, doing yard work for neighbors in need or revamping gardens at nursing homes and have donated over 500,000 volunteer hours through the May 2012 event. Hours are being tabulated for the 2013 event.

As part of the RED Day effort this year, KW Metropolitan spent the day volunteering doing necessary repairs and beautification at two homes for elderly citizens. Previously they have volunteered at Ryan Middle School, Second Chance Refuge Mission and the Metropolitan Multi-Service Center on West Gray and other charitable organizations.

The administration at Ryan Middle School said “At Ryan, we believe that partnerships such as this serve to propel our mission of STRENGTH. We want our scholars exposed to the world beyond our school walls and KW Metropolitan and The City of Houston’s Cities of Services initiative are to be commended for helping us make our mission and vision for Ryan more than text, but a reality”.

“We are always ready to paint Houston red! We are excited to be a part of RED Day and to continue the important company tradition of giving,” said Team Leader, Bruce Kink. “This event has a significant impact on each of us personally. It feels so great to give back to the community we know and love.”
