||FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SAVANNAH, GA (May 8, 2014) – Keller Williams Realty Coastal Area Partners will give back again this year in the company’s annual day of service known as RED Day. More than 250 local associates along with their families and friends will participate in a full display of a culture of caring at Fresh Air Home on Tybee Island.
RED Day stands for Renew, Energize, Donate, as explained by associate Jenny Rutherford, "As busy as our lives are, it is important to turn off the phone, step away from the office and give back to the communities that support our agents. We feel so fortunate to have associates who don't see this as a dollar lost in a day off work, but so much more gained in the community."
Since the first RED Day in 2009, Keller Williams Realty associates around the world have contributed over half a million volunteer hours to community projects around the world (Video: http://youtu.be/f4FNFWX4iS 8). KW Savannah’s RED Day 2014 promises to make an even bigger impact at the Fresh Air Home on Tybee Island, including:
• Fundraisin g to support both short and long term maintenance and building projects
• Volunteer hours to paint, clean, mulch, and repair facilities
• Marketing efforts to illuminate the great impact of this local organization
"RED Day is built on the belief that people can and should come together to achieve extraordinary things to help others," Operating Principal Nancy Thompson said. "We all know that filling all the gaps in our communities can't be accomplished by serving just once a year. RED Day just happens to be the one-day expression of the constant state of the Keller Williams culture. We see a need, discover who can meet it, and get it done."
"Our culture is what defines us as a company, and part of that means taking time to remember what is most important - our communities," Team Leader and Managing Broker Steven Busch said. "I am so proud to see our associates adopting RED Day with such passion and love for their communities. They truly are making an incredible difference in Greater Savannah and around the world."
Every summer the Fresh Air Home (FAH) opens its doors to hundreds of Savannah area children. The mission of the Home is to improve the health of the children, to build character, and to help them grow into better men and women – both physically and morally. The Fresh Air Home opens its doors during the summer months to a maximum capacity of 92 children.
To accomplish this mission, Fresh Air Home provides enriching camps throughout the summer. The Fresh Air Home is operated and maintained by the Froebel Circle which is comprised of 50 dedicated women who are committed to serving others.
