As real estate professionals in the Keller Williams Northwest Region, a strong passion for helping others is already engrained in our everyday work. On RED Day, it takes on a whole new level. This annual Keller Williams “day of service” is dedicated to Renew, Energize, and Donate to causes that speak to our hearts. Working side-by-side to better our communities reminds us why we do what we do with like-minded KW peers who put others first.
While the Northwest Region is made up of 37 different market centers, a unified event reminds us that when we work together, our impact is stronger. Take a look at the latest RED Day results from May 12, 2022:
Each market center is tasked with inviting their agents to a designated activity on RED Day. Organizers are able to select what non-profit they would like to partners with, and this year’s focuses showed creativity, dedication, and heart.
- KW Premier Partners in Vancouver, Washington brought in hairdressers for free cuts, nurses for health checks, meals, and more for houseless individuals at Hope Village and Living Hope Community Outreach. KW Bellevue collected items and raised over $11,000 for Afghans of Seattle, an organization providing support to Afghan refugees arriving in the area.
- KW Sun Valley Southern Idaho did a campaign dedicated to suicide awareness, a cause that hits close to their community. They lined the main streets of their city with hundreds of volunteers spreading words of encouragement and sharing crisis resource information for people who are struggling.
