What Weighs 6,195 Pounds?

Q. What weighs 6,195 pounds?

A. Nope – the answer is NOT 3 elephants. It’s the amount of food our Keller Williams office collected at our emergency food drive on RED Day for SHARE of McLean!!!!

RED Day is an annual Keller Williams Realty event to celebrate our year-round commitment to improving our local communities. And while our 80,000+ agents do many things throughout the year (like our annual KW Cares Charity Golf Tournament), we join together each year on our Vice Chairman of the Board’s birthday to do community service around North America. “RED” stands for “Renew, Energize and Donate”.

2 years ago, Keller Williams agents donated 155,000 service hours in one day. That number went up significantly last year. We haven’t totalled the hours yet this year, but all kinds of activities took place around the country – from home building to blood drives to refurbishing parks & beaches to dances at nursing homes & more.

 

We spent the day collecting food at the McLean Giant and the afternoon/evening at the Great Falls Safeway. 6,195 pounds. More than 3 TONS of food collected! That number is kind of mind boggling – isn’t it?!

And we want to THANK all of our friends, clients & neighbors in the community for being so generous. Your donations will help many families in need in the McLean, Great Falls, Pimmitt Hills, Tysons & surrounding areas. Thank you for helping us give where we live. You might be surprised at the needs in our area. After all, we live in one of the most affluent parts of the country, But they are there and they are real. Before our drive, many of the shelves were empty at SHARE and many folks who needed assistance were not able to get it. SO THANK YOU!

If you would like to join with us in community service for RED Day 2013, contact The Belt Team.
