Submitted to aedgett@sierrasun.comKeller Williams RED Day volunteers give a thumbs up for community service.

TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. and#8212; Keller Williams Realty associates may be taking the day off on Thursday, May 10, 2012, but it will hardly be a day of rest. Associates with Keller Williams Realty have chosen to and#8220;Give Where They Liveand#8221; as part of RED Day, one of the biggest events in the real estate industry.

Short for and#8220;Renew, Energize and Donate,and#8221; RED Day was created to unite Keller Williams Realty offices and associates in an international day of service.

As part of the RED Day effort, Keller Williams Realty has chosen to spend the day with two different organizations. One group of agents will be at the Family Resource Center of Truckee sprucing up the landscaping around the building. FRC promotes social and economic success in the community by providing education, mobilizing resources and advocating for change. A second group of Keller Williams Realty agents will provide a barbecue and do a sing-a-long with the patients at the Tahoe Forest Extended Care Center. In addition to Keller Williams agents volunteering their time, they would like to express gratitude to the following people who have contributed: Lori Wilson with Property ID, Tara Wells with Fidelity National Home Warranty, and SaveMart.

and#8220;This event is an entrenched part of Keller Williams Realtyand#8217;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.,and#8221; said Team Leader Geoff Ewry. and#8220;Last year, at the Family Resource Center we completed much needed building maintenance including scraping and replacing old paint and fixing damaged siding. We canand#8217;t tell you what an impact it made on each of us personally and#8212; it felt so great to give back to the community we know and love.and#8221;

During RED Day 2011, more than 40,000 Keller Williams associates nationwide 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 totaling more than 190,000 hours of service making RED Day one of the biggest events in the real estate industry.
